A driver with a learner’s license has hopefully learned a lesson following a crash that knocked out power to half of Creston.
RCMP say they responded to a single-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon in the 600 block of 8th Avenue.
Officers arrived to discover a power pole severed and was hanging by the wires, and a truck lodged in a fence. The collision caused a power outage.
The male driver was identified as the lone occupant. He suffered minor injuries.
Police say the driver was impaired. He was issued multiple violation tickets along with a 90-day driving prohibition and had his vehicle impounded for 30 days.
