Power cuts in Calne as car crashes into electricity pole


POLICE are warning drivers to take care along a Calne road after a car crashed into post, bringing down electricity cables and causing power cuts in the local area.

The accident occurred shortly before 2pm on Lickhill Road.

A black Nissan, driven by a woman in her 20s, crashed into the pole, bringing it down.

The road was initially closed while emergency services worked to clear the scene.

It is now re-open to traffic but police are asking drivers to proceed with caution as engineers from Southern Electric work to restore lost power in the area.

A spokesperson for Wilthsire Police said: “We were called at 1.50pm to a road traffic collision near Lickhill Road, Calne.

“A car, a black Nissan, had collided with a post which had fallen down with exposed wires.

“Fire are also at scene and council have been tasked.”
