Drunk-Driver-Crashes-into-Utility-Pole-in-North-HoustonA drunk driver survives after crashing into a utility pole.

The wreck occurred Friday at 2:15 a.m. at Airline Drive near Little York. A man was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his car, hit a median curb and slammed into a utility pole. The impact of the collision caused the car to wrap around the pole and snap the car into two pieces. The driver was pinned inside the car for about an hour before firefighters were able to cut him out of the vehicle. The driver was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident and the driver may face a possible DWI charge.
