Accident causes power outage in north Coweta

by Wes Mayer

Homeowners in the Lake Redwine area in north Coweta lost power for a couple hours Tuesday morning after a vehicle crashed into and broke a power pole.

Around 2 a.m., the Coweta County Fire Department was dispatched to a single-vehicle accident on Happy Valley Circle where a power pole had been struck and damaged, said Assistant Fire Chief Scott Harmon. However, when fire units arrived, they found the power pole broken in half, but the vehicle was no longer at the scene.

Firefighters stood by at the scene until authorities with Coweta-Fayette EMC and the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office arrived, Harmon said. According to Mary Ann Bell with Coweta-Fayette EMC, homeowners in the area were without power for about two hours.
