Car Hits Mail Boxes, Utility Pole

A car hit a utility pole in St. Marys this morning after its brakes went out and the driver tried to avoid going into a busy intersection.

City police say Margaret Leushel of St. Marys was on Lynch Road at 9 a.m. when the brakes failed. She drove off the road to avoid the intersection with North St. Marys Street, but then hit a group of mailboxes and the pole before coming to rest in a ditch.

Police say Leuschel suffered a minor injury. The vehicle had to be towed from the scene.
