Crash causes power outage
A large swath of the west end was plunged into darkness early yesterday evening after a vehicle collided with a hydro pole on the 300 block of King’s Highway.
Police said the mishap occurred around 5:10 p.m. when a westbound Honda CRV slid off the road and struck the pole.
As well, traffic flow had to be re-directed from the “four-laner” for several hours.
Police said the driver, a 34-year-old female from Emo, was not injured in the collision.
No charges were laid, police added.
