Woman injured after slamming into southeast Fresno power pole

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A power pole was shattered after a car crash along eastbound Kings Canyon in Southeast Fresno.

It happened just before 12:30 am on Friday near Kings Canyon and De Witt.

Officers say a woman in a black Honda Accord may have fallen asleep at the wheel and crashed into the pole.

The victim remained in the car as power lines were draped across the top.

PG&E arrived moments later to turn off the power and work on the pole.

She was taken to Community Regional Medical Center complaining of pain.
