Shortly after 7:15PM emergency services were called to the area of Shelter Valley Rd west of Inglis Rd in Alnwick/Haldimand Township. Reports indicated a single vehicle had left the roadway and struck a hydro pole.
A single male occupant was sent to a local hospital with what appear to be minor injuries at this time after a vehicle left the roadway striking a hydro pole causing the pole to snap in half.
Hydro one has since responded to the scene to repair damages sustained in the collision. Approximately 250 homes have been left without power following this collision with no current ETA for restoration.
Shelter Valley Rd will remain closed until repairs have been made by Hydro One crews and emergency services are able to conclude an investigation.
