Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies and Independence Township firefighters closed Main Street in Clarkston for several hours after a car smashed through a utility pole, the morning of Oct. 4.
The vehicle ran over a sign and hit the pole on the east side M-15 at Robertson Court, and ended up on the west side of the road, said Clarkston resident Les Haight.
Utility workers replaced the pole.
