A utility pole has fallen onto 23rd Street near Louisiana Street. A truck crashed into the pole shortly before 5:30 this evening.

The intersection will remain closed for repairs until further notice, police said.

Check for more information as it is available.

I was sitting at the intersection. First Management truck. He turned east from Louisiana and was going so fast (what, 100 feet from the intersection?) That he lost control, popped the curb and sheared the pole off at ground level. Glad no one was hurt, and hope he gets all that's coming to him for driving like such an idiot.

Looks like one of the First Management trucks that tailgated me all down 18th street the other day. I was already going 5 miles over the speed limit for him, but I guess it wasn't fast enough.

First Management trucks are driven by careless workers who don't care about their actions because it's a company truck.

I have seen their workers with leaf blowers blowing their leaves into the street and leaving them there. When I called to complain, they said I must be mistaken, it wasn't their workers. The next week they came back and did the same thing.
