Car crashed into hydro pole
INNISFIL – A car left Sideroad 10, striking a hydro pole and causing power lines to cross the roadway during Tuesday's winter storm.
South Simcoe police say the driver, a 56-year-old Churchill man, was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries.
Power was quickly restored, police said, although the road was closed between the 2nd and 3rd lines for a brief period.
Police responded to a number of collisions during the afternoon and evening commute.
Wind also caused power outages and alarm calls overnight.
When motorists are involved in a crash where power lines are down, they should not leave their vehicles. Remain inside and wait for an all-clear from first responders.
If you come across lines down on a road, don't cross them. Call 911 and wait for help to arrive.
