Crash Cuts Power To Lowell Neighborhood

March 29, 2016

Everett

A crash between a small car, a big pickup truck and a power pole took out power to a good portion of the Lowell neighborhood in east Everett.

A sideswipe between the car and pickup on S. 3rd Ave. just south of the Lowell Dog Park sent the pickup truck into a pole.

The pole was shaken but did not break however the accident is believe to have snapped a high voltage power line several blocks south at Eugene Street and S. 2nd Avenue.

The PUD made that line safe and is in the process of restoring power to the neighborhood.

In the meantime the traffic lights are out at 52nd Broadway and the lights on Evergreen Way at 57th and Highway Place are flashing 4-way red.

That’s causing a bit of a slowdown to the early afternoon commute through central Everett.

Good news is there were no injuries in the crash.
