A truck driver avoided a potentially serious situation yesterday afternoon when he crashed into a power pole in Hamilton.
Fire communications shift manager Scott Osmond said the impact brought down the pole in Cunningham Rd, Beerescourt, about 4.30pm.
Emergency services had to deal with power lines draped over the vehicle but the driver was uninjured.
