Pontiac breaks in two during wreck

A Columbus man's Pontiac broke in two Monday as he was driving along Victory Drive, police said.

Richard Harbuck, 22, of Phenix City was driving west just past 22nd Avenue around 8:35 p.m. when he swerved right past a tanker truck in the far left lane, Columbus police said. Harbuck lost control of his 2002 Pontiac Sunfire, hit the right-hand curb and kept moving until he struck a large tree.

Blood was taken from Harbuck and sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. He remained in stable condition in a hospital.
