A vehicle crashed into and destroyed a utility pole Monday night, just west of Rice.
The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office reports that 43-year-old Jeffrey Fuchs of Holdingford was heading southbound on County Road 3 West at 9:20 p.m.
Fuchs was driving in a Sterling tree service truck while also pulling a trailer. Fuchs started entering the west ditch, and then over corrected the vehicle, which caused the vehicle to go into the east ditch, where he then struck a Minnesota Power pole.
Fuchs was not injured in the crash.
