    DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Dubuque authorities say a utility pole on the back of a truck grazed a 12-year-old when the pole penetrated the vehicle carrying her and a 16-year-old driver.

    Police say the accident occurred around 8:20 a.m. Thursday. The truck had halted at a stop light, and the 16-year-old driver told police that she didn’t see the pole extending off the truck in time to stop sooner.

    Her 12-year-old passenger refused medical treatment. The driver wasn’t injured.
