Car accident causes power outage; Woman drives off Gates Pass

Posted: Updated:

A car crash at Fairview near Jacobs Park and knocked out electricity for about 2500 people Tuesday.

The driver hit a power pole, knocking it over with the lines falling onto the car.

Electricity is back for most customers, but about a dozen won't get it back until crews can fix or replace the pole.


A woman drove off the side of Gates Pass Tuesday afternoon. She ended up getting out of the car and walking up the hill.

Investigators have concluded she may have intentionally driven off the road.

Witnesses say the woman told them she blacked out when she skidded off the road.
