Each year, more than 1,000 deaths occur due to collisions with utility poles. Additionally, approximately 40% of utility pole accidents result in non-fatal injuries. Remember, if you are involved in a crash involving a utility pole, your instinct might tell you to rush out of your car and run away from the utility pole. This is because exiting your vehicle can result in electrocution, which can lead to devastating injuries and fatalities. Rather than rush from your vehicle, you should remember that the safest place to stay after a car crash is inside of your vehicle.
