SUV Crashes into Utility Pole

BIG FLATS (WENY) -- A SUV crashed into a utility pole, leaving some homes without power.
     It happened around 7:30AM on Sing Sing Road in Big Flats, just a few blocks from the Elmira Corning Regional Airport.
     Big Flats Fire Chief Art Bentley told WENY that the car was coming down the road when the driver lost control on the ice and hit the pole. The pole snapped in half and NYSEG was on the scene working to repair any down wires. This was as far as we could film in case any wires came down. According to NYSEG's website only one person is without power in Chemung County. Power should be back on by now.
     The driver of the car was not hurt in the accident.
