ALBION – An 18-year-old man from Albion wasn’t injured in an accident at about 11:20 this morning when he struck and took down this telephone pole.

A deputy at the scene said the driver was likely going too fast on the winding road. The driver, whose name wasn’t released, was going eastbound on West Countyhouse Road near the Wood Road intersection.

Albion firefighter Rob Conner picks up some pieces of the car that were scattered on the road and in a nearby field.

The Albion Fire Department, Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance and Orleans County deputies responded to the scene, as well as National Grid.
