Falmouth Police report a vehicle crashed into a utility pole on Thomas Landers Road between Geggat Road and Turner Road.  Power lines were downed, resulting in power outages and a fire.

The sole occupant of the vehicle was transported to the hospital with apparent non-life-threatening injuries. Good Samaratins got the operator out of the car just before it went up in flames. The accident remains under investigation but speed, reckless driving and alcohol were all factors. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
