Driver Crashes Into Power Poles In St Joseph

A car crashed into multiple power poles Monday morning in St Joseph.  The accident happened near the intersection of Lake & Missouri Avenues around 7:00.  Police say the driver was southbound on Lake Avenue when she lost control, hit one pole, overcorrected and hit two more poles which caused some area homes to lose power.  Distracted driving may have been a factor according to a witness of the accident.
