(MITCHELL) – No one was injured Sunday night when a vehicle struck a utility pole in the 600 block of Meridian Street in Mitchell Sunday night.
A 911 call reporting the accident came in at 11:04 p.m. Sunday.
“I heard the loud crash and by the time I got outside to make sure everyone was all right, the driver was already out of the vehicle,” said Taylor Carlisle, of Mitchell. Carlisle’s mast that connects the electricity to his home was torn off the house during the accident.
The pole was in the middle of the roadway and a few residences in the area lost power. Both Duke Energy and Horizon Cable Services were contacted to make repairs.
The name of the driver has not been released at this time as Mitchell Police Department continues to investigate the accident. The driver refused medical treatment and there was no one else in the vehicle at the time of the accident.
Mitchell Police Department transported the driver of the vehicle to IU Health Hospital in Bedford for a blood draw.
Mitchell Police, Mitchell Fire, a Seals Ambulance Crew, Duke Energy, and Horizon Cable responded to the accident.
