Man Recounts Getting Impaled By Pole

‘A man who was impaled by a metal post said he was walking on his own the day after it was removed from his body.

James Graham, a truck driver, was seriously injured on Aug. 16 when a 10-foot pole went through the driver’s side door and into his body after he crashed his 18-wheeler into a chain-link fence.

Graham said he remembered the crash, but doesn’t remember the pole going through his body.

“I didn’t even know I was stuck until a bypasser got up on the truck and said, ‘Oh man, you’ve been stabbed with a pole,”‘ Graham said. “I was like, ‘What?'”‘
