COSTA RICA NEWS – Hitting utility poles has been a trend in the last day, with three separate accidents in less than 24 hours.

The first accident, in Curridabat, a big truck struck a utility pole affecting thousands with no electrical power for a good part of the day.

The second, Thursday night around 11:00PM, an SUV struck a utility pole near the Autos Xiri in La Valencia, Heredia. In this incident, the driver was drunk behind the wheel. Initial traffic police reports say the driver, an expat, was able to walk away from the accident, but suffered serious injuries and is in police custody.
