Just before 7 a.m. on 03/22/2018, officers were in the area and heard a large crash. Officers then observed that a white Volvo had struck an IPL pole in the 5200 block of N Keystone Ave. There were three occupants inside the vehicle, who were immediately rushed to Methodist hospital by EMS personnel.
