Pick-up truck takes out light pole in Clinton

A mechanical issue caused a white Ford pick-up truck to lose control an crash into a light pole on Wednesday evening.

Nobody was injured in the collision.

The wreck occurred around 6:30 p.m. in Clinton. The sole occupant of the truck was southbound on Highway 525 when the driver’s side front wheel came off. The vehicle veered off the road and collided with a light pole at the intersection of Campbell Road.

“The whole wheel and rim came off,” South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Jon Beck said. “We couldn’t find the tire at the scene.”

Overall, however, the vehicle sustained only minor damages, he said, despite the pole falling on top of the truck.

One lane of traffic on the highway was closed “about 45 minutes.”
