Crane Knocks Power Out on Town Square


 Jackson Hole, Wyoming 

A crane hit a power line Saturday in downtown Jackson, knocking out power on the Town Square and the surrounding area during the busy noon hour.

The outage occurred about 10:30 a.m. when a crane working on a redevelopment project at the corner of Pearl Avenue and Jackson Street struck the power line, Lower Valley Energy spokesman Brian Tanabe said Monday. The accident cut power to 525 customers, many of them businesses, Tanabe said.

The cooperative dispatched two repair crews to the scene and had returned power to all customers by about 1:30 p.m., Tanabe said.

Tanabe was not sure the exact circumstances surrounding the accident, and calls to developers of the project and the Jackson Public Works Department were not immediately returned.
