A 27-year-old Duluth man escaped serious injury when his car ran off Haines Road, striking a power pole and then a tree in Hermantown, Monday.

Witnesses told Hermantown Police that the car ran through multiple yards on the 3900 block of Haines Road before ultimately striking the tree, and knocking the engine from the car, according to a police statement.
