A Lawrence teenager lost control of his car and hit two telephone poles near Ninth and Iowa streets, police said.
Only one car, a 1997 blue Dodge Intrepid, was involved in the accident, which happened at 11:50 a.m. Thursday at Hillcrest Shopping Center, in the 900 block of Iowa Street.
“The vehicle veered up and over the right curb and into a telephone pole, splitting the pole,” said Kim Murphree, police spokeswoman. “The impact caused the vehicle to spin and hit another telephone pole.”
The 17-year-old driver and his 52-year-old female passenger were not injured, Murphree said.
