YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman traveling along a street on the west side of Youngstown ended up driving her car up a guide wire to a utility pole.
The accident happened about 1:20 p.m. on Steel Street.
The driver, Amber Johnson, said she turned around for a second to give her 2-year-old child a snack and hit the wire. The car went up the guide wire, resting vertically.
“My first thought was him, so I jumped straight out,” she said. “I just opened the door, jumped straight out, ran to the back, made sure he was OK. He was a bit shaken up, but he was OK overall.”
The woman was able to exit the vehicle and get help. She and her child were not injured.
It took two wreckers to get the car down. Ohio Edison was also called to the scene to fix the damaged wires.
