Fairfield – Pole Crash
A car crashed into a utility pole in Fairfield early yesterday morning.
A few minutes past midnight, authorities received reports of a gas leak and car crash at the intersection of Mill Plain and Unquowa Roads. Emergency crews were quickly dispatched to the area and discovered a vehicle that veered off its proper lane, crashing into a pole and gas line. The area around the crash site was immediately blocked off due to the gas leak and several live wires hanging low at the scene. Everyone affected by the incident has since been tended to by responding medical personnel, and the appropriate support crews have already been contacted to repair all damaged equipment/structures. The case is still under investigation.
