ACCIDENT CAUSE: Light Pole Was Damaged | News
Authorities say a light pole that fell on an Interstate 235 ramp fell because it was damaged.
It happened late Wednesday night, just before midnight at the 50th Street entrance ramp in West Des Moines.
Four vehicles, including a motorcycle, hit the light poll — which was lying across the ramp.
Police reports say an inspection reveals one of the three corners holding the pole in place broke.
No one was seriously hurt but several vehicles sustained damage.
