Crash into pole knocks out power in Spencer

SPENCER (WAOW) – A pickup truck slammed into a power pole on state Highway 13 in Spencer on Tuesday, knocking out electricity for a time and forcing traffic to be detoured, authorities said.

An electrical line fell on the truck when the pole came down but the driver was not injured, said Thaddeus Kubisiak, the village administrator.

Power was restored to most of the village by about 4:30 p.m., except at the intersection of Highways 13 and 98, he said.

Some traffic on Highway 13 was also detoured while repairs were made, which were hampered by a heavy downpour of rain, he said.
