A little after 1:00 on Monday afternoon, Leitchfield Police and Fire Departments responded to a single-car accident on Lilac Road across from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, two-tenths of a mile past the Leitchfield city limits.
A blue Jeep Cherokee, traveling north on Lilac, left the road on a downhill slope, crashing into a utility pole, snapping it in half.
The pole was holding cable television, electrical and phone service cables.
The driver of the vehicle was transported to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center by EMS personnel as a precautionary measure.
Warren Rural Electric was called to the scene to repair the downed lines and pole. Traffic in both directions on Lilac was halted for around three hours while officials worked the scene.
