At around 12 a.m. on Tuesday, units from Glade and Powers Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the scene of the accident near the intersection of Old Highway 15 and Ellisville Tuckers Crossing Road.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a black pickup truck pinned against a light pole in the front yard of a house.

Although the events leading up to the accident are unclear, it was reported that the vehicle struck three fruit trees, uprooting them from the ground, and then struck a light pole as the vehicle rolled onto its passenger side, according to the Jones County Fire Council.

The force of the impact against the light pole knocked out power for over 700 residents in the area, and effectively lodged the pickup truck against the pole, requiring tow truck personnel and neighbors to remove parts of the truck in order to dislodge the vehicle.

The entire process took around two hours to complete, according to JCFC.

The adult male driver of the truck, although shaken, was not injured and refused transport to the hospital. He was, however, taken into custody by Jones County Sheriff's Deputies for reasons unknown.

Rescue personnel on scene included Glade and Powers Volunteer Fire Departments, EMServ Ambulance Service, Jones County Sheriff's Department and Jones County Public Information Officer Caleb Worrell. Dixie Electric also responded to the scene.

Fire apparatus included Glade Brush 1, Powers Heavy Rescue, Powers Brush 1 and Powers Command 1.
