Crash: Vehicle into power pole

A vehicle crashed into a power pole Thursday morning near the intersection of East McLoughlin Boulevard and F Street, in Vancouver’s Arnada neighborhood.

Vancouver Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said that multiple transformers were sheared at the base of the pole, and Clark Public Utilities crews responded to the scene. The crash was reported minutes after 11 a.m.

A medical condition apparently caused the crash, Kapp said. The driver and sole occupant was transported to a hospital for evaluation. His name was not released.

Seventeen customers were without power Thursday due to the crash, Clark Public Utilities spokeswoman Erica Erland said.
