You Should Avoid Oak Lawn Ave. at the Moment

If you're planning on traversing Oak Lawn somewhere between Cedar Springs and Maple, don't. Pictured above is the sedan that plowed into a utility pole not long ago. As I just discovered during the drive into the office, Dallas Police have a huge swath of Oak Lawn completely cordoned off, and a utility crew's just now pulling in for repairs. We put in a call to see if anyone was injured.
