Car hits pole, flips in Upper Granville


UPPER GRANVILLE - An eastbound car on Highway 1 crossed the road and hit a utility pole on the north side of the highway early Monday afternoon.

The crash happened just after 12:30 p.m. at 161 Hebbs Landing Road.

The crash snapped off the pole and the car ended up back on the road on its roof. The lone occupant was a 30-year-old man who was able to escape from the upside-down vehicle -- a 2005 four-door Chev.

Annapolis District RCMP, Bridgetown fire, Nova Scotia Power, and EHS were all on the scene.

It is not known at this time if the man was injured.

Nova Scotia Power crews used a chainsaw to cut away the broken pole.

Firefighters directed traffic off Highway 1 and down Hebbs Landing Road that loops around the crash site. They also used an absorbent to soak up fluids from the car and cleaned up debris scattered across the road.

There were no signs of impairment but RCMP said the crash is under investigation.

More on this later.
