Truck accident causes power 'blip'

September 12, 2006|by ANDREW SCHOTZ

A home health-care pharmacy truck hit a guy wire Monday afternoon, causing a "blip" in electricity service in Hagerstown, a city official said.

The truck pulled a guy wire out of the ground at Wilson Boulevard and Frederick Street and bent a pole, Hagerstown Light Department Manager Karl Kohler said.

The guy wire shook the power lines, causing a brief "blip, but not an outage, in the city's downtown and south and east ends, he said.

Larger electricity users might have seen a brief gap in power if their buildings diverted to a backup source, he said.
