HOUSTON -– An early-morning crash sent a driver to the hospital and broke a utility pole into two pieces on Monday.
Houston police were called to Sands Point Drive near Tarnef Drive on the southwest side around 3:30 a.m.
A female lost control of her small Lexus sedan and left the roadway, hitting the pole. The crash split the pole, but the lines kept part of it from hitting the ground.
The woman was sent to the hospital with minor injuries.
