 Lakeside -

Early Tuesday morning, November 9, 2010, units from the Lakeside Fire Protection District were dispatched to a vehicle versus a power pole on Maine Avenue.  Engine 1 from the Riverview fire station (fs1) arrived on scene first to find a full-size Silverado pick up that had "center punched" a power pole causing communications lines to fall across the roadway.  

Maine Avenue was closed for about a half hour between Lakeshore Drive and Laurel Street. The driver was wearing their seat belt and air bags did deploy.  The driver suffered minor injuries from the impact and was evaluated by paramedics. Cox Cable was on scene to fix the downed lines.

  1. It is amazing what people can walk away with. No seat belt and that individual would more than likely not be alive today.
