      Driver Smashes Power Pole With Car, Leaves Scene

      A driver runs away after tearing down an electrical pole with his car.

      Tulsa Police found quite a mess late Wednesday near Independence and north Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.

      EMSA paramedics were patrolling the area, police said, and told investigators they heard a loud boom.

      Police eventually found the source of the noise: a car hit and snapped a PSO electric pole in half.

      Officers said the driver left the scene on foot.

      The crash interrupted electric service for a short period of time at a nearby apartment complex.
