    Corvette crashes into power pole

    Corvette crashes into power pole

    Sparks flew when pole was knocked off base and into the street.

    TUSTIN, CALIFORNIA - A man driving a red Corvette on Tuesday night crashed into a power pole after clipping another car while attempting a U-turn, neighbors said.

    The Corvette knocked the pole off its base and into the street just before 7 p.m. Tuesday, causing sparks to fly. Residents of the neighborhood between Utt and Cindy on Bryan Avenue came outside to see what had happened. Chris Hemans, a resident of a nearby neighborhood, said he saw sparks explode from the pole twice.

    "The ground shook like the earthquake," said Pam Colby, a resident of a nearby neighborhood. The pole and wires were leaning onto her roof, Colby said, and she was told to stay outside.

    The driver of the Corvette was injured in the accident. The man was treated on scene by Orange County Fire Authority paramedics and taken to a nearby hospital. No one else was injured in the crash.

    The Corvette also hit at least one car on Bryan Avenue between Newport Avenue and Red Hill Avenue. The driver of a black Mitsubishi Lancer was not injured in the crash, but his rear bumper was damaged, and his car towed about an hour after the accident.

    "It happened so quick," said Frank Macabeo, the driver of the BMW. Macabeo, 28, of Tustin said the Corvette had spun out of control before hitting the pole.

    Southern California Edison sent a truck to fix the wires about an hour after the crash. Some residents were without power for a few hours after the accident.
