‘Same pole, different accident’: Distracted driver flips car in Berlin one day after police release video of crash in same spot – MassLive.com
One day after Berlin police posted dashcam footage of a dramatic texting and driving crash on Central Street, authorities said a distracted driver hit the same telephone pole as the driver in the video.
The Berlin Police Department posted a photo of an overturned car Tuesday night, writing that one occupant was extricated and taken to a local hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.
On Monday, the department posted dashcam footage of a crash that happened on July 23 in the exact same location. The video shows a sedan drifting off the road, hitting a telephone pole and overturning.
“Same pole, different accident from distracted driving,” Berlin police wrote Tuesday night.
The department posted the video of the July crash as a reminder that distracted driving can have serious consequences.
“The text, email, Facebook, Snapchat Message can wait- it is not worth your life or the life of another person,” police wrote.
