Couple survives after power pole impales SUV in Seattle
00:50

A couple said they're lucky to be alive after dozens of power lines fell on the Seattle street they were driving on, with one wooden public utility pole striking their SUV. Tom and his wife Linda Cook were driving in their Ford Edge on Friday when wooden poles on the western side of the six-lane road started collapsing and one impaled their SUV. The crash was so sudden that they didn't realize what had happened and called out to each because the pole that separated them blocked their view of each other. It took about an hour for emergency crews to turn off the power and safely extract the couple from the vehicle.
