Ironic, isn't it?

The above photograph shows the sign Sheriff's Deputies observed when an older model Pick-up truck was removed from where the operator had impaled it into a very large Indianapolis Power and Light utility pole on Peterman Road south of County Line Road near the Friendly Village Trailer Park. When Deputies arrived, they observed a truck smashed into the pole, which had been split in half. The transformer fell and exploded and the live arcing power lines crossed the railroad tracks, causing the crossing arms, bells, and lights to activate. Once the power company arrived and made the situation safe, the wrecker driver began recovering the truck, which is when we could see the sign inches above where the truck struck the pole: "CASH FOR JUNK CARS AND TRUCKS..."
