St. Paul police say the woman who hit a light pole and drove nearly a mile with the pole on top of her car before stopping has been identified and cited.

Police were called around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, and spotted the car on the 300 block of Edmund Avenue. According to police, the woman hit the pole and sign on Rice Street and drove ¾ of a mile with the 15-foot pole on her car, hitting parked cars as she went.

Police say the driver fled the scene and was later identified as 18-year-old Lucille Vue of St. Paul.
