The incident occurred after 1 a.m. just outside of Casa Chirilagua at 4901 Mount Vernon Avenue. The crash smashed the Sentra’s windshield and caused its front and side airbags to deploy.

An ambulance arrived at the scene and the driver walked out unscathed. He was given a field sobriety test and arrested. The car was towed away at around 2:30 a.m. and the light pole was left on the sidewalk.
