A car accident outside Newsday's office at Pembroke Street, Port of Spain, toppled a telephone pole on Thursday.
At around 2.50 pm a woman parked her Hyundai Vezel along Pembroke Street, near Templar Court.
A wrecker tried to take away the car, but she came out in time to stop them.
As she drove off, her foot got stuck on the pedal and she drove along the pavement and knocked down the pole. Another car was damaged when the pole fell.

She was taken by ambulance to the Port of Spain General Hospital.
Technicians from the Telecommunications Services of TT (TSTT) were called in and replaced the pole.
