Man Arrested For DUI After Crashing Pickup Into A Utility Pole

A driver was arrested after a crash that blocked an East Redding road at midday Thursday. At around 12:30PM, 39-year-old Dana Antos was driving a heavy duty pickup truck with a utility bed on Hartnell Avenue when he left the pavement at Argyle Road and struck a power pole, knocking it down across the roadway. The road was closed to traffic as both REU and PG&E responded and got the wires and pole out of the way and repaired. Redding Police determined that Antos was under the influence of drugs and he was taken into custody.
