The pole was split and the vehicle came to rest on its top off the highway. Highway 213 was closed several hours due to down power lines.

At approximately 8:30 PM a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Salvador Compean, age 51, from Scotts Mills, was southbound on Highway 213 at a high rate of speed near Wagon Wheel Road when it left the highway and struck a power pole.
