Woman possibly shocked after crashing into utility poll

LA GRANGE, N.C. (WNCT) – A woman is in the hospital after she was possibly shocked by power lines after crashing into a utility pole.

Lenoir County Emergency Services says the car hit the pole around 9:45 Monday night near the intersection of Mays Store Road and Jim Sutton Road in La Grange. That’s near US Highway 70.

Emergency services say the crash caused power lines to fall down, which may have shocked the woman. She was taken to Vidant Medical Center. 9 On Your Side is working to get an update on her condition.

Two children were also in the car at the time, but were not hurt. Their relation to the woman is not known.
