MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - A Midland police officer was uninjured after his vehicle crashed into a power pole on Tuesday night.
The accident happened on Andrews Highway, in front of the Golf Course Road Church of Christ.
Authorities said the officer was "running hot" to a high priority call when his vehicle hit water and the vehicle hydroplaned into a power pole.
We're told the officer was uninjured, however, the power pole was damaged.
That caused a big traffic backup for Midland drivers as the area was shut down so crews could finish repairs on the damaged pole.
