Video: Freeing Semi Truck from the Light Pole it Ran Over on 9 Mile Road in Ferndale

(Crystal A. Proxmire, July 8, 2020)

Ferndale, MI – Ferndale Police and DPW acted quickly to help free a semi truck of the light pole that it had run over and dragged near 9 Mile and Hilton Wednesday afternoon.

The semi truck was headed east on East 9 Mile just west of Hilton Road at about 2:40 pm, striking the pole just before the tracks.  The shepherd’s hook-style light pole was dragged along 9 Mile until the driver cleared the tracks.

Ferndale departments worked quickly to block traffic and dislodge the large pole from the vehicle.

There are no reported injuries.  Traffic is back flowing in the area.
