Woman charged in crash that caused outage

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) –

A 46-year-old woman has been charged with driving under the influence in the weekend crash that knocked out power to downtown Fairbanks.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1jgEdRE) reports Tina L. Bolt is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a revoked license.

Fairbanks police say Bolt on Saturday night tried driving a sport utility vehicle east on Second Avenue and hit multiple signs and parked cars, including one in which a man and woman were sitting.

Police say the man confronted Bolt and told her to stay but she fled.

Police say Bolt sideswiped another car, crashed through barricades in a construction area and smashed into a power pole.

The pole fell on the SUV and power was interrupted for about a half hour.
