Winter driving hazards

The first touch of wintry weather in the North Boroughs took its toll, making for some slippery brick streets Wednesday evening. This vehicle was traveling down Kendall Avenue in Bellevue about 8:30 p.m. when it slid into a utility pole at the corner of Rheams Avenue. The pole splintered and fell, taking down some wires and the nearby street sign. The driver told police that he was not injured. Bellevue Police and Fire departments were dispatched to the scene.
