What a strange series of events. A man crashed into a utility pole in Plant City Saturday near the intersection of US92 and Branch Forbes Road. Channel 8 says the driver suffered serious injuries and is facing charges since he was driving with a suspended license. His accident did more than damage to himself and his Ford Fusion.
He ended up burning down a house. They say the 31 year old Clearwater man crashing into the pole ended up yanking wires inside a nearby house. That caused a fire. The good news is the house was unoccupied. [Source: Channel 8]
