Accident knocks out power to West Hamilton

OLNEY— Residents living near Hamilton may have noticed a loss of power following an accident on Avenue M.

Olney Police Chief Barry Roberts said no citations have been issued following a Tuesday morning accident, which brought down a power line just outside of Olney Hamilton Hospital.

“She was going eastbound, we don’t know what happened,” Roberts said. “We don’t know if she blacked out, we just don’t know. She is in the emergency room now and we will have more information later.”

Roberts later added the motorist was transported across the street to Olney Hamilton to receive treatment. Power has since been restored to the area and no hospital patients were effected by the outage.
