Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr is apparently okay after crashing his car into a telephone pole in Wellesley Sunday morning.
According to police, the 57-year-old scribe and WRKO talk-show host was driving south on Wellesley Avenue, between Oakland and Forest streets, when his 2004 Acura suddenly crossed into the oncoming lane, hit a curb, and slammed into a telephone pole.
Wellesley police Sgt. Marie Cleary said Carr refused medical treatment and the car was towed. (The pole was split in half.) Carr was cited for a marked-lanes violation. "There were no signs of alcohol or anything suspicious of that nature," Cleary said yesterday. "It's a windy road there. I'm not sure if he was distracted for a moment."

Ping list please!!!
Let me guess: the accelerator got stuck.
Another TEXTING accident?????
How’s that multi-tasking working out 4 U?
he should have checked his car for ACORN tampering before he got in.
i dont let my kids go near it until i do, god bless them and keep them safe from the liberals
white light to him in his recovery
Maybe he dropped a Fried Clam.
Just decided to veer into the other lane?
pinging the Howie list, thanks..
will go on some radio boards...
thank god he’s ok. Conservatives in this country have suffered enough bad blows.
hmm—no sign of booze (I think Howie says he doesn’t drink these days)...distracted? windy? (Car problem? insert last name pun here... big shoe jokes galore on the chumpline today)
Don’t look at where you don’t want to go. Look at where you want to be in a few 10s of milliseconds.

The Carr that drives Boston home...drove into a pole...
Thank God he’s ok, should be an interesting Chump Line!
That shows you how dumb Kevin Weeks is.
If he wanted to get Howie he would of filled up a “Kelly’s Roast Beef” bag with C4.
Bad ice cube!
Glad he’s OK, and I’ll crank RKO at 3.

Trouble driving with the “big shoe”?
Ok, let me guess, he hit the accelerator instead of the brake, lost control and slammed into a pole? HOW OLD WAS THE DRIVER??????????? LOL! Today’s show is going to be good and the chumpline will be a hoot!
