Car Wreck Knocks Out Utility Pole on Grand Avenue, Man Placed in Custody


A familiar location for accidents on a windy Fort Thomas road claimed another vehicle early Sunday morning.

A car wreck at around 1:25 a.m. in the 100 block of Grand Avenue ended with one man in custody of Fort Thomas Police and a few hundred without power after a man crashed his vehicle into a utility pole.

The man taken into custody was reportedly a white male in his 20s or 30s. The car he was driving had Kenton County plates.


Electrical wires from the pole were laying across the road and both directions of traffic were shut down. Duke Energy was on scene before 2:00 a.m.


Neighbors on scene witnessed the man staggering around after the crash. He appeared to be okay.

This small stretch of Grand Avenue has been the site of some high-profile car crashes over the last few years. In most reported cases, alcohol or drugs have been a factor.
