Car Hits Utility Pole, Knocks Out Power in Huntington, W.V.: Injuries Unknown

Posted on Apr 27, 2012
April 27, 2012 – Huntington, W.Va. – A vehicle crashed into a utility pole late Wednesday night, April 25, knocking out power in the surrounding area.

WSAZ reports that the accident happened at about 11:15 p.m. at the intersection of 26th Street and 12th Avenue. The vehicle went off the roadway and struck a utility pole. The pole snapped in half on impact and power lines were brought down.

There has been no word on whether or not the driver, whose identity remains unknown, or any other people were injured in the accident. There was only a single vehicle involved in the crash.

Officials with American Electric Power were on the scene most of the night, putting in a new utility pole and working to get power back to the affected area.

Whether or not charges will be filed in connection with this accident is unclear. The cause of the accident is also unknown as local authorities continue to investigate.
