Photos: Street poles take a hit in the slippery conditions

Author:

Slippery roads Tuesday morning led to more than a hundred crashes. Dozens of vehicles ended up in the ditch. And a few took out telephone and light poles.

The Duluth Police Department posted on Facebook that someone hit a power line Tuesday morning. The post says the driver was not injured; however the power line isn't looking so good.

And the Bayport Police Department posted on Facebook that a vehicle took out a street light on the intersection of 5th Street North and 2nd Avenue North.

They say the driver left the scene and they're trying to find out who did it.
