Herald columnist Howie Carr was heading home from the newspaper Sunday morning when his sport-utility vehicle slid across the road and slammed into a telephone pole in his hometown of Wellesley.
Im fine. Nothing happened to me, Carr said yesterday. I just slid over the center lane. It was raining, it was windy, and I was going down a hill.
I tried to pull out, I couldnt and I hit the pole, said Carr, who was driving a 2004 Acura SUV. Im definitely buying new tires for it.
Police gave him a written warning for a marked lanes violation.
Carr, also a WRKO (680-AM) talk host, said he was on way his home from the Herald newsroom, where hed picked up his mail.
Police said Carr was driving south on Wellesley Avenue just before 8:30 a.m. when he crossed into the northbound lane, struck a curb and hit the utility pole.
Carr declined medical treatment, and his vehicle was towed.

Roman Polanski, the Oscar-winning movie director arrested in Switzerland as a fugitive from American justice, filed an application Tuesday with a Swiss court seeking his release, news reports said. The United States has been seeking his extradition for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977, but the sudden move by Swiss authorities to arrest Mr. Polanski when he arrived in Zurich to collect a film-making award on Saturday has roused diplomats, offended supporters of the filmmaker and left more than a few onlookers asking themselves the same question: Why now? SHould Polanski have to face the music for a 30 year old crime?
