A car rests bolt upright against a telegraph wire after it careered off a country road in a bizarre crash.

The Vauxhall Corsa veered off the narrow B1084 in Chillesford, Suffolk, and came to rest practically on its haunches.

Incredibly, the driver and four passengers walk away unhurt following the smash, which happened just after noon yesterday.

Baffled police are still trying to work out how the bizarre accident happened.

 

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: 'There were four passengers in the vehicle and there were no injuries reported but the vehicle was held up by a telegraph pole.

'It seems there was no real damage to the vehicle or the telegraph pole.

'The power to the pole was turned off temporarily while the car was recovered.'

Anyone else see that woman trying to parallel park for 30 minutes the other day? That was a silver Corsa too. She's at it again!

"t's neither a telegraph wire or an electrical cable. It is a support cable for the pole - a guy cable - an anchor to hold it in place. - Col_Prender_Smythe , Surrey, United Kingdom, 25/5/2013 22:53 ......................... To be PEDANTIC It's actually called a STAY WIRE - in the Power Industry - that's attached to the Electricity pole !" Oh you pedant you! Thanks for letting me know. It's one of those things that one never knows the name for if one never uses them. I can think of many such examples.... the dangly bit at the back of the throat, David Cameron, the plastic cover that goes over prongs on plugs and Nick Clegg.

Lets us and the local police thank heavens that no one suffered, the car was recoverable, and apart from the rather unspectacular pictures, let's get on with life and (for police) not bother with this idiotic escapade, that probably was loss of driver control (usual cause).

Why do you need to turn off the POWER on a TELEGRAPH pole ? If you look at the yellow - DANGER OF DEATH - sign on the ELECTRICITY pole, it's clearly obvious it's an ...........ELECTRICITY cable !
