FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- A Milford teenager and his father are lucky to be alive after their car skidded on a sheet of ice, sliding into a snow-filled shoulder and launching their vehicle airborne into a United Illuminating pole, Fairfield police said.

Mohammad Maula, 18, was traveling on Brookside Avenue as it turns into Hill Farm Road, with his father early on Tuesday, March 10, police said.

Officers responded to the accident at 1:38 a.m. and found Maula’s car had come to rest on the driver’s side, and the UI pole was cracked in half, according to police.

An investigation determined that Maula had been driving 35 mph in a 25 mph zone, police said. After the crash, Maula complained of soreness in his shoulder but refused medical treatment, police said.

Police said they had to shut down a portion of Hill Farm Road while UI workers worked to repair the pole.

Maula was cited for traveling too fast for conditions.
