A one-car crash in Ithaca yesterday (August 27) evening took down a utility pole support cable, near the intersection of Elm Street and Floral Avenue on the city’s west end.
Officials say the accident happened around 6:30 p.m.
Several witnesses claim it happened when the vehicle took the corner approaching the intersection too fast and lost control, going off the road and striking an embankment.
The vehicle was left undriveable and later had to be towed from the scene.
No injuries have been reported and no tickets have been issued at this time.
