Pelham crash splits telephone pole in two; Mass. teen unhurt
Corey Galloway, 17, of Dracut, Mass., was taken to Lowell (Mass.) General Hospital for evaluation and later released.
Police said Galloway was driving a 1998 brown Oldsmobile Bravado when he looked down to adjust his radio. As he looked back up, his car veered off the shoulder of the road and slammed into the telephone pole, which broke in half.
Route 38 was reopened about 10:10 a.m. Sunday.
Distracted driving appears to be the cause of the crash, police said, noting that alcohol and drugs were not a factor.
