WARNER ROBINS -- Chris Patterson was on his way to work Monday morning when he snapped photos of a car crash near North Houston and Elberta roads.

The driver, a gray-haired man appeared to be all right and was standing outside talking to police, said Patterson, 25, who installs windows in homes and businesses for a living.

One lane was closed next to the Chevron gas station and Papa’s Wings and Deli restaurant where the crash occurred, Patterson said. Drivers were slowing down to take photos as they passed by.

“It was pretty much a long line and pretty much everyone was doing it,” Patterson said of the traffic and other motorists capturing the scene on cellphones. “I wondered how he could do it?”

Tabitha Clark, public information officer for Warner Robins police, stated in an email that police received a call of a vehicle hitting a utility pole at 8:39 a.m.

No injuries were reported, and Flint Energies was called to repair the pole, she stated.

Clark did not state how the driver managed to crash his vehicle like that.

Patterson said traffic was only slightly delayed with the one lane closed and, of course, motorists slowing down to look and take photos.

Patterson posted his pictures on his Facebook page along with this comment, “Only the drivers of Warner Robins could drive up a pole.”
