An erratic driver took out a light pole and then a power pole after rolling his vehicle Saturday afternoon.

A police officer with the Rothschild Police Department said it happened around 2:30 p.m. They received a call of an erratic driver who knocked down a light pool near the Holiday Inn on Imperial Avenue.

According to police, the driver then continued down County XX in Rothschild flipping his vehicle hitting a power pole.

The man told EMS personnel that he was not injured. WPS crews were called to restore the power to residents in Rothschild and Mosinee.

Law enforcement have not said if speed or alcohol were factors in the accident, but the driver did leave in handcuffs.
