A taxi accident is 100% pilot error. But let's see who they blame this one on.

Clipped? More than clipped by that amount of damage! "Struck a light pole" would be a better description!

Brick sidewalks, street lights, gutters.....This was a taxiway? Doesn't look like any taxiway I've ever seen. Maybe at John Travolta's house with its personal hanger, but not at a commercial airport.

That was my first thought too - a rather odd setup for a public airport.
