If you’ve ever wondered how strong telephone poles are, this should give you an answer.

Emergency crews were called out just before 10pm tonight to the intersection of Memorial Blvd and Meeker Rd after getting reports that a driver had wrecked into a telephone pole.

Upon arriving, they found this van smashed into the pole, with only one headlight working. EMS was dispatched to the scene to check out the driver, who refused service.

Witnesses said that the man worried about not being able to get the van home to his mother.

Wreckers services arrived shortly after and towed away the van.

KPUB then showed up to inspect the pole for damage.

As far as we know, no citations were issued to the driver of the van.
