Crash-a-Palooza: The Curious Case of Trucks vs. Poles at Southern Indiana Walmart
What's yellow and red and invisible? Apparently a stop sign in the parking lot at the Princeton, Indiana Walmart.
My friend Matt Kelly tagged me in a viral post on the Facebook page Gibson County News & Talk, and I had to share it with you. I'll admit that I am not the best driver, especially when it comes to parking. But I am proud to say that I haven't driven into a pole or stop sign.
These are actual photos shared on social media. Two of these strange wrecks that left a pick-up truck up a pole - Literally - happened in the same week. The pics can speak for themselves, but I have to include some of the best comments on Facebook, too.

That happens more than a person would think. Seen it happen several times while working there lol
If only they would paint it a color that would stand out and grab your attention. Something bright so it doesn't blend in.
I did this once while driving a riding mower up a tree. I wasn’t paying attention. I was eleven. I’m almost 50 and I still feel like I should apologize to my dad for it again!
In the Near future, the Ad will go like this: If you ever struck a pole in a Wal-Mart parking lot you may be entitled to compensation
I personally know three people that have had a beef with that pole.
This has happened three times in the past month that I have physically seen with my own eyes. I have no clue how many times it has happened when I wasn't visiting Walmart.
I hope it's not a TikTok challenge
