A light pole was severely damaged a single vehicle accident on the Prince Philip Parkway Monday night but there were no injuries to the lone driver. 

It appears the driver lost control of the car and hit the pole on the median in front of one of the entrances to the Confederation Building.

Newfoundland Power personnel and a member of the St. John's Regional fire department could be seen assessing the damage to the pole which was bent precariously over the road.

The car involved in the incident was also extensively damaged.
