Vehicle strikes utility pole, causes power outage

By KTVA CBS 11 News 4:18 PM July 9, 2014

Dozens of Municipal Light and Power customers won’t have power into Wednesday evening after a tractor-trailer struck a utility pole near a Shell gas station in Mountain View.

A call about the collision near Mountain View Drive and Price Street came in shortly before 2 p.m., said Anchorage Police Department spokeswoman Dani Myren.

About 91 customers, which includes a mix of homeowners and businesses, are without power, said Ronnie Dent with ML&P.

The utility company had to de-energize the line that got stuck to make the repair, Dent said, cutting off power to customers. ML&P says it will take a few hours to repair the line and restore power.
