FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Two women were seriously hurt after they crashed into a pole holding a sign early Sunday morning.

Emergency services responded to the crash around 4:30 a.m.

Police said the SUV appeared to have slid off the road while heading north on Broadway at Lavina Street. The vehicle hit a pole head-on and snapped it, bringing down a sign it was holding at what used to be a spay and neuter clinic.

Medics took both the driver and passenger to a hospital in serious condition.

It wasn’t immediately clear if alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Police said slick roads could have played a role.
