VIDEO: Car dangles from power pole

- A freak accident in Gibson County, Tennessee left a car dangling from an electric pole and miraculously, the driver was not seriously hurt.

Police said the driver of the Saturn was speeding Saturday when she somehow ran the car up the power pole's guy-wire, spun around the pole and got tangled in the wires.

The posted speed was 30 miles an hour, but it was unclear how fast she was going.

It took crews two hours to pull the woman from the vehicle after smashing her window and using a bucket truck to lower her to the ground.

She was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and released the next day.

Police said there was no indication alcohol or drugs were involved.
