Power pole damaged in rollover accident

LAWTON, Okla._A two-car collision Monday evening left a pickup on its side and a power pole leaning.

It happened at the intersection of southwest 14th Street and "I" Avenue. Police say the driver of the toppled truck failed to yield at a yield sign, and was hit broadside. The force of the collision kept both trucks together as it slid into the pole. None of the power lines were disconnected, but crews were called in to repair the damaged pole. One woman sustained minor injuries in the crash.

The driver was not cited, though, because police noted that low-hanging branches from a tree at the intersection blocked the driver's view of the yield sign.
