A Jefferson City man is recovering after a crash…but the utility pole is not going to make it.
JCPD says George Baker, 72, had a medical issue while driving his SUV on Industrial Drive at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. He crashed into a utility pole, shearing it in half.
Industrial was closed for more than four hours between Jaycee Drive and Dix Road while Ameren crews replaced the pole. Baker has minor injuries.
