We were without power for about four hours this afternoon when a semi, coming up Hale Street (never a good idea), tried to make a left hand turn on Mineral Street and took out five utility poles. Above/below are some pictures from the scene. Took us out of commission all afternoon, on a good writing day….grrrrrr.
One of the firemen on duty said he lives on Grant Street and the power flickered there shortly before he got the call about the accident. It is amazing how little one can do in this day and age without electricity. Many thanks to PECO for restoring our power! Also many thanks to Pottstown police, fire and rescue workers for promptly arriving on the scene!
