OXFORD — A Norway man walked away from a crash Tuesday night that destroyed his father’s truck and sheared a utility pole off next to Route 26.

John Grant Jr., 18, of 9 Hemlock Drive, lost control of the 2003 Toyota pickup truck as he drove south near the ServiceMaster business, Oxford police Patrolman Shawn Wood said. The truck struck a telephone pole, shearing it off at the base but not toppling it, he said.

The investigator said Grant had no recollection of what happened. He was checked at the scene by Oxford Rescue but refused to be taken to a hospital, Wood said.

Grant was cited for violating his bail conditions and given a summons to appear in court Jan. 14, the patrolman said.

The truck, which was registered to John Grant Sr. of the same address, was demolished.
