Wreck on Sunnyside Ave. and Yellowstone Hwy. Natalia Hepworth | EastIdahoNews.com

UPDATE:

Idaho Falls Police say the Mustang never made contact with the power pole but it appeared that way because the car was parked fairly close to the pole.

The damage from the Mustang came from it being rear-ended by another vehicle.

The man who was transported to EIRMC complained of shoulder pain, but he is not suffering from life-threatening injuries.

IFPD will continue to investigate the crash.
