Crashes related to roadside fixed objects like trees and utility poles comprise 12 to 15% of all fatal roadway departure crashes in the United States. Besides the risk of being killed as a result of collision, utility poles that are downed or struck by vehicles can maintain a charge and as a result pose an additional danger to drivers. As a result, if you’re involved in a motor vehicle crash, remember that it is often a better idea to remain inside of the vehicle if a utility pole wire has come loose.
