Light Pole Knocked Over in Clarendon

A light pole was struck by a vehicle in Clarendon and knocked to the ground, but luckily no one was hurt.

The accident happened around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday morning. Initial reports suggest that a box truck hit the pole, in front of Moby Dick House of Kabob (3000 Washington Blvd), sending it crashing down onto the sidewalk.

The glass light covers shattered across the walkway. No injuries were reported and the sidewalk was blocked off by police pending a cleanup.
