I was awoken this morning by the sound of a loud crash and something very large falling. Large enough that I felt the house shake with the impact.

Going outside, I found that a car had crashed into a light pole at the corner, nearly totaling the car and causing the light pole to topple over onto the street (thank God it didn’t fall on the car).

The rider was without major injuries, the car was calling the police via OnStar, and a small crowd was gathering to care for the driver. By their estimation, they fell asleep at the wheel (heard second hand, not from the source, by my ears).
