Car hits pole in front of Abbotsford News office

Driver of red Hyundai manages to free car after crashing on hill

A car making a right turn off of South Fraser Way onto Gladys Avenue (right in front of the Abbotsford News office) appears to have badly misjudged its route.

Around 8:30 a.m., a red Hyundai was spotted hanging on the grassy hill that connects the two streets. Onlookers stated that the car had struck the pole nearby.

Shortly after the driver of the car freed his vehicle until it settled on the bottom of the hill.

By 8:50 a.m. the car had reportedly driven away. It appears to have suffered some damage from its hood due to the crash with the pole.

We will have more on this story if it becomes available.
