    Woman Seriously Injured When Car Hits Utility Pole
    Springfield Fire Department

    A woman was seriously injured when a car struck a utility pole in Massachusetts.

    Springfield fire says they responded to 840 Page Boulevard just before 12 p.m. on Sunday to find a Hundie Kona had struck and knocked down a utility pole. The wires in the pole were live and sparked a grass fire on the lawn of Mary the Mother of Hope Church.

    Firefighters extricated the female passenger and she was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries.

    The driver was also transported to the hospital, officials said. It is not clear what his condition is at this time.

"I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
