WARNER ROBINS -- Motorists who drove by a car crash Monday morning near North Houston and Elberta roads may have asked, “How did that happen?”

Chris Patterson of Warner Robins said he certainly did as he drove by and captured a couple of photographs of the 1986 Mercury Marquis in a vertical position next to a utility pole. Patterson posted the pictures on his Facebook page.

The driver, 88-year-old Willie Lee Brown of Warner Robins, told police his car struck a guy wire on a utility pole -- causing the vehicle to “climb” the wire, the accident report stated.

Brown’s car left the roadway after he clipped another vehicle slowed for traffic ahead of him, the report stated. No one was injured.

Brown had to be helped out of his car by arriving Warner Robins police officers.
