Truck Shears Power Pole Near Shadow Mountain Village

9th and cottonwood9th and cottonwood 2A single vehicle accident near the intersection of 9th and Cottonwood in Craig late Friday afternoon sheared a power pole. The Colorado State Patrol is investigating the accident, and says the preliminary investigation shows the driver may have been under the influence. They say inattentive driving also led to the crash. Yampa Valley Electric crews cut power to parts of Craig for about 45 minute while the pole was replaced. The KRAI and 55 Country studios were without power during the outage, taking both stations off the air. Click on photos to enlarge.
