Crane Touches Power Line (17th Time in 2000)


Punta Gorda, Florida

Another crane boom touches power line.  This is the 17th power line accident report we’ve received this year.

Electric power to 1,777 Punta Gorda residents was knocked out Thursday morning after a crane on a barge in a Punta Gorda Isles canal struck a power line.

The boom of the crane knocked down a “feeder” line that supplies power to the downtown area, according to officials at Florida Power and Light. No injuries were reported.
