Van brings down power lines on North Shore

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A van overturned after it crashed in Hamilton Parish yesterday afternoon.

Police confirmed the vehicle hit a utility pole near Francis Patton Primary School on North Shore Road.

A BPS spokesman said the road was “impassable” because of power lines down in the area but that no one was hurt.

The Royal Gazette contacted Belco for details of any power outages but no information was received by press time.

Traffic diversions were set up on Middle Road, Flatts, and at the Blue Hole Hill roundabout and police said the stretch of affected road remained closed at about 9.30pm.
