Accident causes power outage


A trooper along with Piercetown firefighters work at the scene of a single car accident on Alliance Parkway Tuesday night. A car left the roadway and struck a utility pole, breaking it. Power lines fell across the roadway and Alliance Parkway was closed for more than an hour until utility crews arrived. More than a half dozen tractor trailers waited in line trying to get to the Walgreen Distribution Center until the roadway was cleared of the fallen lines. The woman driver and two children were taken by Williamston EMS to an area hospital. (Photo by David Rogers)
