A Washington man from Grays Harbor was electrocuted after urinating on a downed power pole. Apparently, the 50-year-old survived a car accident where he ran into┬áthe pole. He called relatives for a ride but unfortunately met his demise while waiting for them to arrrive and peeing off the side of the road. The man apparaently didn’t notice a live wire laying on the ground from the pole┬áthat his car had knocked over.

Authorities say “burn marks indicated” the way the electricity travelled through the man’s body.
