EL PASO – A woman is in the hospital after she crashed her car into a light pole on the Border Highway and knocked it down into oncoming traffic early Wednesday morning.
Police say she was headed East on the Border Highway near Fonseca when she hit pole and it fell into the Westbound lanes.
Another driver in those Westbound lanes told us he couldn't avoid hitting it so he tried to drive over it, but his car ended up getting stuck on top of the pole instead.
Police closed down the Eastbound lanes and one Westbound lane until the crash was cleaned up.
