‘Not a legal parking spot’: Car found impaled outside Walmart in Mass.

While responding to a call about a car crash this week, police in one Worcester County town made an unusual discovery: a vehicle, impaled on a pole, in a Walmart parking lot.

Police received the report of the single-car crash Friday night and found the vehicle impaled on the pole in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter at 20 Soojian Drive in Leicester, according to a Facebook post from the town's police department.

"The overnight shift responded to a single motor vehicle crash in the Walmart parking lot. And in case you were wondering...no this is not a legal parking spot," the Leicester Police Department said in its post.

The post included a photograph of the crash scene that shows the car, a Volkswagen sedan, on top of the yellow dividing pole. A police cruiser can be seen in the background.

The department did not say how the car became impaled.

No further details about the crash were released to the public.
