Accident cuts power supply

A CAR which struck a power pole at the corner of Percy Street and Acacia Avenue in the early hours of yesterday morning cut the electricity supply to about 1100 customers.

An Ergon Energy spokesman said the power went out at 2.34am.

“That took at the time all of the customers on the Wood Street feeder, about 1100, initially off,” he said.

At 3.23am crews isolated the damaged area and were able to reconnect power to all customers bar 126.

Power was restored to all customers at 4.42am, the spokesman said.

A Warwick Police spokesman confirmed a car had hit a power pole at that address about 2.30am, but was unable to provide any further information.

The spokesman said the man, who was still in hospital yesterday evening, was yet to be interviewed by police.

While investigations into the matter are still continuing, the spokesman was also able to confirm that just one vehicle was involved in the incident.
