A family of four is recovering at a hospital tonight following a vehicle accident that took out a utility pole.

The incident took place just before 7 pm at the intersection of Jackson road and Orangewood, when according to witnesses a silver Chevrolet SUV traveling northbound on Jackson swerved to avoid colliding with a silver Ford Focus as it was turning into a parking lot. The driver behind the SUV lost control and hit the utility pole, knocking it over. A 28-year old couple and their two young daughters suffered non-life threatening injuries.
