Vehicle catches fire after striking power poll
A driver had a close call late Monday afternoon while driving on Highway 80 in the west part of Abilene.
The driver told authorities he had a blow out, lost control of his Chevy Suburban, and drove into the ditch...knocking down a power poll.
That caused the power lines to fall on top of his car setting it and the grass around it on fire.
The 32-year-old man was not injured and firefighters got the fire out before it burned too much area.
