It has been reported that a flat bed truck collided with a concrete JPS pole at the deep corner at Louden Hill Pond Side. The accident caused major damage and as a result power was lost today at 5pm in Yallahs Square, Baptist, Knightsville, Louden Hill, and in all the areas on Yallahs Main Road from Corner to Pamphret.
The damaged pole also lay across the street which resulted in a bottle neck of traffic developing along Yallahs Main Road. Police and JPS personnel responded to the scene.
Light has now been restored to all the areas on Yallahs Main Road starting at Corner to Catholic Lane. The pole was partially removed from the road at around 6:14 pm allowing again for flow of traffic with the aid of some good Samaritans.
