PowerPoleSACRAMENTO -

A driver fell asleep on the wheel and woke up to find he had driven off the road and smashed a light pole onto the ground in Sacramento early Thursday morning.

The impact was so strong, oil poured out of the car onto the road and the car was mangled.
The accident happened around 3:30 a.m. at Gerber Road and Skybrook Lane.
The pole was originally blocking the roadway, but crews were able to quickly move it off.
