Allen Street Outage

Posted on 28th June 2013 at 16:54

Christina Reed, 19, is being cited for reckless driving, after a crash yesterday afternoon in the 3800 block of Allen Street, a collision that knocked power out for more than 200 Cowlitz PUD customers. Shortly after noon yesterday, a crash was reported near the DeRosier Rock Pit, with one witness claiming that the car involved had been doing as much as 100 miles an hour before crashing into a power pole. Reed and a 17 year-old male passenger both suffered injuries in the collision, which took 202 PUD customers off-line. Reed and the passenger were taken to St. John Medical Center, where both were treated and released. She was cited and released after being let go from the hospital. Most of those affected by the power outage were back within an hour, though it did take longer to restore electricity to those in the immediate vicinity of the crash.
