PARIS, TN: Car swerves into power pole, breaks it

A one-vehicle accident Monday afternoon on Stewart Road resulted in the breaking of a utility pole alongside the road, with power lines being flung onto the road. The car apparently went around a curve too fast, striking the pole and cracking it in half about 4:20 p.m. The wreck occurred just more than a mile north of Highway 69 northwest of the Henry County Airport. One person appeared to be injured, with an ambulance from Henry County Medical Center responding to the scene. A spokesman with the Cottage Grove Volunteer Fire Department said the department had one pumper and two brush trucks at the scene. Also called to the site were the Henry County Sheriff’s Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol.
