Car collision shears off power pole

Posted: Updated:

A two-vehicle car collision took down a power pole which caused a temporary power outage throughout the area. Police said this occurred around noon Saturday on the intersection of 15th St. West and Central Avenue.

A silver Ford Explorer was heading eastbound on Central Avenue while a black Ford F-350, which was pulling a trailer full of tires, was heading west. Authorities said the silver Ford was making a left turn when it impacted the side of the black Ford. That's when the black Ford reared and pulled into Buck's Bar parking lot and sheared off the power pole.

The driver of the silver Ford is a 90-year-old male and was transported to Billings Clinic. He sustained non-life-threatening injuries. NorthWestern Energy headed out there right away to fix the power pole that was taken down.
