A street light lies on the ground while firefighters assess the damage on Vedder Rd. Tuesday.


ccidents happen at the speed of light. But it's not clear how fast you have to be driving to flatten a steel street light at its base.


This was the case Tuesday at around 7:30 p.m. when a vehicle southbound on Vedder Rd. lost control just after crossing the overpass, and slammed head-on into a streetlight in the centre median.


There is no word on injuries, however there were unconfirmed reports the driver initially refused medical attention.
