Driver in car seen airborne before hitting utility pole

A middle aged woman, while driving north into Yorktown, found herself in her car leaning sideways on a utility pole at the 500 block of State Highway 119 South.

Witness Vernon Sparck of Yorktown was sitting on his porch drinking coffee. He said, “She wasn’t going that fast. She hit the culvert and went airborne. [The car] flipped and hit that pole.”

The driver (who wanted to remain anonymous) was driving a 1998 taupe, four door, Chevy Lumina. She said, “I was just on my way to the dentist. I don’t know what happened.”

Department of Public Safety trooper Justin Nixon affirmed that the driver veered across the oncoming lane, drove nearly 30 yards on the lawn, hit the culvert which made the vehicle airborne traveling approximately 30 yards before the driver’s front corner hit the ground. Upon impact the vehicle bounced up on it’s side hitting the utility pole to bring the vehicle to a stop.
