Late last night, a pickup truck traveling on Martin Luther King Boulevard in St. Augustine, Florida, left the road and struck a power pole. According to police, the driver of the pickup then got into a friend’s pickup nearby in an attempt to flee; however, the friend then lost control of his truck and struck an air conditioning unit connected to the United Way building on Weeden Street.
The first driver has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Both drivers are under investigation for suspicion of driving under the influence. The two accidents left local Florida Power and Light customers without power for hours.
