Woman Injured When Vehicle Struck Utility Pole in Clay County

A single-vehicle accident in rural Clay County resulted in possible incapacitating injuries and also damaged a utility pole.

According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, the accident happened shortly after 2:30 Sunday afternoon just west of Gillett Grove. 58-year-old Barbara Carroll attempted to manage a left curve at 435th Street and 270th Avenue when her vehicle went off the right side of the road and entered the ditch. Carroll’s vehicle struck a utility pole head-on, which caused the pole to break in half. The top half of the pole fell to the ground, which caused the wires to hang dangerously low to the ground.

Carroll’s vehicle was totaled. She was transported by the Spencer Ambulance to the Spencer Hospital. Webb Fire Responders was among the agencies that provided assistance.
