Employees with Entergy and RTC work to remove a downed utility pole along Main Street near U.S. 51, after a white Nissan Maxima slammed into it Wednesday morning. St. John Sheriff’s deputies investigating the one-car wreck said the

driver of the Maxima was traveling too fast around the curve of Main Street and lost control of the vehicle. The driver of the Maxima, Nicholas Tortorich, was taken to River Parishes Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. (Staff photos by Robin Shannon)
