Car crashed into utility pole close to Chelsea Ave. on Half Way Tree Road

Description

"Crash scene: It's not yet clear how it happened. Some eyewitnesses claim he was sleeping, others said the vehicle must have merely gotten out of control. But according to reliable formation, Mr. Allan Sherif was driving this Ford Nova motor car along Half Way Tree Road on Sunday when he finally ended up in this utility pole, close to Chelsea Avenue, after swerving to prevent a head-on collision with another vehicle. An unidentified lad who was also in the car was together with Mr. Sherif taken to hospital."
