Wreck knocks out power to section of Madisonville

Posted: Updated:
MADISONVILLE, KY (WFIE) -

Crews in Madisonville responded to the scene of a two vehicle accident at West Noel and Pride. 

 

Madisonville police say as the woman driving a tan car approached the stop sign at Pride Avenue, she accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

The sudden burst of speed sent the car into a utility pole, the stop sign and another car before stopping.

Power was out in the area while crews worked to clear the mess of mangled wires and repair the pole.

 

Authorities say no schools were affected by the power outage.
