One man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after an accident just south of the intersection of Minert & Bancroft Road at about 5pm tonight.
A fellow CLAYCORDIAN named “Ross” was on scene, and tells us what he knows about the accident….
The vehicle was a late model Toyota mini van of some type. I spoke to one neighbor who witnessed the accident and he said the vehicle was traveling south on Bancroft and suffered a blowout sending him out of control and into a telephone pole that was snapped in half, then spun the vehicle around several more times.
The transformer blew-up causing a short power and cable outage in the area as well. The driver was a middle aged male who was taken out by the Fire Department and then rushed to the hospital.
He was also the only occupant in the vehicle.
Thanks to “Ross” for the information & photos, and also to “Mitch” for sending in some of the photos shown above.
