A man was jailed after the vehicle he was driving crashed into three utility poles, a fire hydrant and a house, breaking a gas line and shutting down South 6th Street for a short time.
Police were called at 5:55 p.m. Friday to the 1600 block of South 6th Street. A 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Javario J. Woods had first hit a utility pole nearly a block away from where it finally came to rest. The Tahoe hit two more utility poles, a fire hydrant and two trash cans before crashing into the house at 1627 South 6th St. A gas meter at the house was broken, prompting police to shut down the block to traffic until repairs could be made.
Woods told police he was having car trouble and lost control of his vehicle. However, multiple witnesses told officers Woods was chasing another vehicle at a high rate of speed when the crash occurred.
Woods refused medical treatment and was arrested on charges of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief and reckless driving. He was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
