An early morning accident on Highway 27 took out power to Fort St. James on Nov. 27.

The motor vehicle accident involved a single pickup, which left the road, striking a power pole at around 4 a.m. in the morning.

The driver was the only person in the vehicle at the time, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the accident. No other vehicle was involved in the crash, but a vehicle behind the pickup did strike some debris on the road as a result of the crash.

Power was quickly restored after the pole was struck, however, the pole itself was badly damaged and BC Hydro had to slow traffic for part of the day through the spot to replace the damaged power pole.

No one was injured in the incident, and RCMP are still investigating the cause of the crash.
