Almost 1,500 BC Hydro customers were left without power Tuesday night after a motor vehicle accident in Port Alberni.

The accident took place on Saunders Road in Beaver Creek around 7 p.m. when a truck crashed into a power pole.

The power was restored before 8 p.m. for many, but will remain off for some areas of Beaver Creek until BC Hydro can get to the scene and re-string the fallen lines, according to the Beaver Creek Fire Department’s commanding officer on duty.

BC Hydro’s online outage map estimates the power returning at 11 p.m.
