NOW THAT'S BUILT FORD TOUGH

MAN TAKES DOWN POLE ON WASHINGTON
Elyria – A 21 year old Elyria man was arrested for OVI Sunday evening after he crashed his 2009 Ford truck into a utility pole on Washington Ave in front of the old YMCA.

Police say that James O’Donnell was traveling south on Washington Ave when he went off the left side of the road and struck the pole – severing it into two pieces. O’Donnell got back on the road and continued south before he parked his truck in a parking space.

LifeCare Paramedics were called to check out O’Donnell but he refused any treatment or transport.

Police then administered a series of Field Sobriety Tests – all of which Police say O’Donnell failed. He was taken into custody and transported to the Elyria City Jail.

During the booking process O’Donnell consented to a breath test – the test results showed O’Donnell’s blood alcohol level was .114%.

While neighbors stood by watching the scene many were amazed by the apparent minor damage done to the Ford truck – especially since the truck had just taken out a utility pole. One neighbor, while looking at the truck said; “Now that’s built FORD TOUGH.”

I see Service Director Don Bracenoff was on there, is he in charge of utility poles now?
