Power lines damaged in Abercrombie crash

ABERCROMBIE, N.D. – Some residents in Abercrombie and Kent were without power Wednesday after an early morning crash took out electric and phone lines.

The crane of a Northland Truss vehicle driven by Sean Sullivan, 47, of Walcott, struck power lines and damaged three poles at the intersection of First Street East and First Avenue in Abercrombie.

Power was restored to most residents by Wednesday afternoon, according to Otter Tail Power Co.

Damage is expected to exceed $10,000, the Richland County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Sullivan was not cited in the accident.
