Posted: Updated:

Crews responded to vehicle vs. light pole crash that caused multiple small grass fires along Platte Ave. in Colorado Springs Friday afternoon.

The driver apparently fell asleep at the wheel before the crash. The car rolled over, damaging multiple power poles and lines and igniting three separate grass fires.

The driver walked away uninjured, according to CSPD. Crews were able to put out the fires quickly and power was restored to customers within an hour after the crash.
