YORK – A vehicle broke out the bottom of a utility pole outside of York Central School late Wednesday morning.
According to first responders on scene, the car was westbound on Rte. 63 (Genesee Street) when the driver lost control, crossed the oncoming lane, and crashed through the utility pole at about 11:20 a.m.
The driver was checked for injuries in an ambulance and released at the scene.
Even without the bottom two feet or so of the pole, the wires were held off of the ground. For a few minutes, wires were down across a tractor trailer. First responders helped the truck get free of the wires and on its way.
First responders on scene indicated that the wires were phone lines.
Neither RG&E nor National Grid reported any power outages as a result of the accident.
Firefighters with the York Fire Department responded to the scene alongside an ambulance crew with Livingston County EMS. The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and New York State Police investigated.
