The accident occurred nearly at the driver's home.  The truck came around a 90 turn and lost control possibly due to a rain earlier in the evening.  The truck had 2 brothers in the vehicle and one was transported to the hospital to be checked out.  The power pole had lines coming down that were damaged.
