An Enterprise commercial truck crashed through a telephone pole on Anneta Road on Thursday afternoon.

Shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday, Leitchfield Police Department and Grayson County Sheriff's Office personnel responded to the accident near 1384 Anneta Road in Leitchfield.

Investigating LPD Patrolman Jeff Helvey said on the scene that, while travelling on Anneta Rd., the driver of the truck, Ernesto Diaz, of New Jersey, lost control of the vehicle and went off the shoulder of the road into a ditch before driving through the pole.

The truck came to a rest across from 1384 Anneta Rd.

Javier Lopez Maldonado, of Pennsylvania, was also in the truck at the time of the accident. Neither Diaz nor Maldonado were injured as a result of the crash.

Warren Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation (WRECC) was called to determine through what type of pole the Enterprise truck had driven. WRECC representatives verified the pole was, in fact, a telephone pole, Helvey said.

Windstream was then called to the scene to repair the damaged telephone pole.

The truck was removed from the ditch by Stevenson's Wrecker Service.
