COLUMBUS, Ga. — At the intersection of Cherokee Ave and Diamond Street, Cherokee Ave is blocked due to a fallen cable pole.
According to the Columbus Police Department, a 46-year-old woman struck the pole while trying to avoid a dog that was in the road and overcorrected. The driver is okay.
Police say speed may have been a factor in the incident. Georgia Power will be removing the cable pole, but have not arrived on scene.
