One woman had an unexpected trip to the hospital after running her SUV into a power pole.

It happened Thursday afternoon around one in the 23-hundred block of Faudree.

Odessa Police say the driver was heading south, when she made a hard right, and slammed into the pole, splitting it near the top.

The powerline fell to the ground and started a grass fire, but fire fighters were able to get it out pretty quickly.

The driver was taken to the hospital, but her injuries are said to minor.

No word yet on what caused the accident.
