A vehicle struck a pole on East Highway 25/70 this morning knocking out power to many customers of Newport Utilities. Electric Manager Jimmy Robertson in a release at 3:22am said East Newport, Wilton Springs & Parrottsville substations tripped offline. Crews are in the process of restoring power. A major pole on Asheville Highway was hit and broken in the crash however central dispatch tells the NewsSource that no serious injuries resulted.
