The car was quietly going along the road and then all this abuse from said power pole so what was the car to do. The pole had to be taught a lesson so the car hit the pole-right in the middle: the unmarried person in the car (he was a single occupant) had to post a pic on farce book to record the event in case everyone thought this story was made up...

Hey c'mon guys..!!

They are worse than trees for jumping out in front of cars! Hopefully the driver is ok and the phone survived as well... would be terrible to have to miss anything on farce book if that got damaged....

I feel so sorry for this poor motorist who was in this rogue car - this car had the temerity to hit a local power pole. When are these scoundrel vehicles going to be put to heel - enough is enough
