A fatal crash into a power pole has damaged the pole enough that the power lines are creating an unsafe condition.
On Thursday May 6, 2021 at 11:42p.m., an officer on patrol came across the crash near the intersection of Northeast Sandy Boulevard and Northeast Killingsworth Street. It appeared to be a single vehicle crash into a power pole. The officer called for paramedics but one of the two occupants in the vehicle was deceased. The other occupant suffered non life-threatening injuries.
The damage to the pole caused a threat that the power lines could fall. Utility crews are working to repair the damage. All vehicle and pedestrian traffic is blocked on Northeast Sandy Boulevard between Northeast Killingsworth Street and Northeast 102nd Avenue.
