P-plate driver loses control, ends up perched on power pole
A P-plate driver has been left perched in a precarious position after being driven up a diagonal power line.
The wayward stationwagon crossed the line and mounted the power line on the corner of Pascoe Vale Road and Sunset Boulevard.
Witness Tarek told Neil Mitchell the driver took the corner too fast and lost control.
“He’s come flying around the bend, lost control of his car, up onto the gutter and straight up onto the electricity pole,” Tarek said.
“If he tried 100 times he couldn’t do that.”
