I'm amazed that they weren't hurt worse. That has got to be a driver's worst nightmare.

Why is there no photograph or video of the Westar semi truck and trailer with the load of these long utility poles? Maybe a wider shot with a little more information in it would have been nice. Or some blood.

Oletimer , sorry but westar and the contractors working for them do not haul utility poles on Flatbed Trailers , they are actually pole trailers made for this such effort.Realest-mccoy... lets see you say something like this when its your family member involved !

Video of this on the news was horrifying...hope the passenger recovers. My first patient in the ER was a passenger impaled by a fence post after a highway accident...he was conscious with the pole through his chest, upright in a wheelchair coming out of the ambulance, cursing as they rolled in the door "Get this......thing out of my chest!" Again,all good wishes to the victim and family.
