Gyroscopic effect caused by the increased weight of the disk wheels. Couldn't stay in his lane. Those onlookers might be shocked if the wires come all the way down! Actually, I think the pole got the worst of the accident. The car can probably be repaired, but the pole is totaled.

I have a feeling that if the light pole was fairly new the T would have been wrapped around it or maybe damaged a lot more.
The pole appears to be rotten or old looking at it base!

Since it was in the ground and concrete poured around it probably was near rotted at the base. It might not have been treated.

I don't think I would have been standing near it!

Glad I have bumpers on my hack. Hope I never wipe out a pole like that driver did. Only bumper damage. They really work!

I'd say those are pretty well-dressed urchins.

Husband consoling wife, by his arm around her behind the on-looking local kids. She was driving.

Husband saying....."It's all right honey, no real harm done to the Ford, just remember, next time push on the right pedal to stop. That left pedal is for go...."

Or he's saying; what the #%#**^ made you think you should drive on the %#^%%+* sidewalk. Now don't start blubbering and carrying on! You sound like your Mother! Hopefully we can get it out of here before the cop gets here. I don't want to end up paying having to pay $750.00-$1000.00 for a %+#^%* pole.

Note the snow fence on the roof of church. Kept the snow from sliding off en mass hurting or killing those below.

Oops. I see that was addressed in the link.

Norm,
That pole can easily be used again. It'll just be shorter, that's all. :-)
