Power was knocked out in downtown St. John’s earlier today, due to a vehicle accident near Water and Cochrane streets.
Wires could be seen draped over a truck that pulled onto Cochrane Street. A utility pole, broken near its base, came to a rest leaning on another pole.
Newfoundland Power crews responded to the scene, to deal with the complicated situation, and conduct repairs.
Members of the RNC and St. John’s Regional shut down the area to the public, diverting traffic onto Prescott Street.
