    Car vs. Telephone Wires in Texas

    CAPTAIN BRIAN P VICKERS

    On June 13, 2004, at approximately 8:30 AM, Community Volunteer Fire Department's Engine 2 and Ambulance 2 were dispatched to the intersection of Alief-Clodine Road and Metro Boulevard in Southwest Harris County, Texas for the report of a car versus telephone pole.

    Upon arrival, the engine company found a vehicle still running, hanging on the telephone wires by its right front tire.

    Witnesses reported that the car had been traveling westbound on Alief-Clodine when the driver lost control of the vehicle, crossed the median, and made contact with the guide wire from the ground to the telephone pole, propelling the vehicle upward onto the wires.

    Witnesses also reported that the driver jumped down from the vehicle and ran to catch a bus prior to the arrival of Engine 2 and the Harris County Sheriff's Department.

    The vehicle ran for over an hour until the oil had completely drained from the motor and it seized.

    Several wreckers and a Southwestern Bell crew removed the vehicle from its perch.
