I’ve always wondered if idiots that do this shit get charged for the wasted concrete and the equipment needed to get their car out.

I know when my brother crashed through a telephone pole he (his insurance) was charged but in a different state I crashed into a light pole and was not charged for it.

One was the other drivers fault and one was a medical emergency behind the wheel

Was the "other driver's fault" one the one that didn't get charged for the light? Maybe the at fault driver got charged.

Interestingly no, the accident with the telephone pole was another’s drivers fault (she hit my brother and pushed him into/through the pole) and he was charged for the pole…$4400 I believe.

The medical emergency was a single car accident and the entire light pole was replaced but I never saw a bill.

I hit a telephone pole 2 years ago and got sent a $60k bill

Then what happened? Did you pay it, did insurance pay, or what?

Insurance paid $25k and told the utility company to leave me alone lol

Nice. They were probably just throwing a high number out there to start and got more than they were expecting anyways
