It was a close call for three men driving overnight, as a car drives off a roundabout in Grand Junction and clips a light pole.

The car accident turned out to be a drunken driven incident and happened just before 2 AM at 12th and Horizon.

A motorcyclist alerted police that a pick up truck went off road and when officers arrived they arrested the driver for a DUI after he failed a sobriety test.

There were no injuries in the crash, but it was a close call; just a few more feet and they may have wound up in a ravine. And police say it would have been much more difficult for them to get out.
