SUV hits utility pole in Longview, runs into home
Longview, Texas (Longview News-Journal) —
A driver lost control of an SUV Tuesday on Pine Tree Road before running over a utility pole and into a house, police said.
The crash, which involved a Toyota 4Runner, left neighborhoods near Pine Tree Road without electricity, and AEP Southwestern Electric Power Co. personnel were working to restore power Tuesday evening.
Longview traffic officer Rodney Smith said the fallen utility pole stretched across two lanes of Pine Tree Road, and a truck traveling southbound had become entangled in the lines, pulling down and damaging a connected pole across the street.
A third utility pole also was damaged in the crash.
