Sharp turn puts power out

Burns Lake RCMP received a complaint of a red tractor trailer truck hitting the power pole.

On June 24, 2015 at 12:59 hours, the Burns Lake RCMP received a complaint of a red tractor trailer truck hitting the power pole in front of Woods and Water located at 870 Hwy 16, Burns Lake, BC.

Members spoke with the driver of the red tractor trailer and determined that he had taken the turn too sharp and ran over a stop sign and hitting the hydro pole.

Burns Lake municipal workers blocked the road as the hydro pole was unstable while waiting for BC Hydro to attend. BC Hydro attended thereafter and restored power to the over 900 people the power outage effected.
