Truck Hits Pole, Causes Motorcycle Crash
An Amarillo pickup driver kept hitting the gas.
Around 9:30pm last night a pickup truck caused a fair amount of damage around 13th and Washington. The driver was traveling south on Washington and crossed into the northbound lane eventually hitting and knocking down pole in front of a house. The power pole fell on top of the truck.
The driver then tried to back up, causing the pole to roll off the truck. The pole rolled into the roadway where it was struck by a motorcycle carrying two riders. Both riders were ejected.
The truck driver then tried to drive down 13th and hit a tree. Backing up again the truck hit another tree in front of the home where he had hit the power pole moments before.
The driver of the truck and one of the motorcycle riders sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Amarillo Police are continuing the investigation.
