The car has a mind of it's own. LOL Nothing to do with the supposed driver. But then most local drivers are clueless about what they are actually doing when behind the wheel. Do I sleep? Chat on the phone? Sit a kid on my lap and let him play with the steering wheel? Or am I actually meant to be in control somehow?

Yup Fas ! If you walk drunk  and hit a power pole it's you who hit the pole.But if you drive a car against a power pole it is the car who hits the pole.Easy answer to your question actually.

Ahh, the car struck the power pole, not the person controlling it?
