Pole protects Sarnia construction workers from out-of-control car

A fortunately-located power pole protected some construction workers in Sarnia from an out-of-control car Monday.

Sarnia police say a 17-year-old boy lost control of his vehicle on The Rapids Parkway, drove into the ditch and rammed into the pole, just before he would have ploughed through the construction site.

No one in the car was seriously hurt. The teen has been charged with careless driving.
