Posted on 28th November 2014 at 08:45

Longview Police and the Cowlitz PUD are responding to a car crash that took place this morning in the three thousand block of Hemlock, knocking power out to several blocks around that area. The collision took place at 7:08 am, with a car hitting a utility pole. The result of the impact knocked the power out in an area bounded by Garfield and Kansas Streets, between 30th and 32nd, affecting 165 customers. It doesn’t appear that anyone was injured, as Longview Police continue to investigate the crash. PUD officials say that the damaged pole will need to be replaced, a process that will take several hours. Repairs are expected to be completed some time around noon today.
