CLEARFIELD, Utah – Officers said a 64-year-old Clinton woman may have suffered a medical issue before her 2006 Nissan  Sentra crashed into a power pole in Clearfield, taking out power for thousands Friday afternoon.

Authorities said the woman crossed over the westbound lanes and took out the power pole near 825 W. and 300 N. at about 12:30 p.m.

Clearfield Police said the woman got out of the car on her own and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
