A Plymouth man escaped serious injury after crashing into a utility pole late Sunday night.
An officer with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash on Upas Road in the s-curve, north of 11A Road. The driver, Randy G. Green, 56 of Plymouth, reportedly diverted his attention from the roadway and ran off the road in the west curve. The vehicle struck a fence and a guide wire for an electric pole. The electric pole then fell on top of Green’s vehicle.
A crew from Kankakee Valley REMC was called to the scene to help get the pole off the vehicle and to repair the lines. Green didn’t sustain any serious injury and the scene was cleared by police.
