Collision with Power Pole Leaves 900 in the Dark Thanksgiving Night

A late-night collision with an LMUD power pole left 900 homes in the dark on Thanksgiving night.

Around 8:30, emergency responders found a Subaru on its roof. The car had collided with the power pole with enough force to collapse it and leave it lying across Richmond road near Circle drive and trapping those in the car. Emergency crews and LMUD linemen safely got the passengers and driver out of the vehicle. Only minor injuries were initially reported.

The loss of power affected those in the Richmond road, Susan Hills, and Golf Course areas for two hours.

No details on the cause of the collision or those involved have been released.
