A second accident involving livestock occurred shortly after 11 p.m., when Marcia Williams of Delta struck a calf on Sawmill Mesa Road near the Delta Correctional Center.
A DMEA power pole was struck during an accident involving three vehicles at the intersection of Highway 92 and 1800 Road. The accident occurred at about 2:36 p.m. According to DMEA, about 1,151 customers lost power in the Delta area. It was restored by 4 p.m.
DMEA reminds members involved in car-pole accidents to remain inside their vehicles. Only exit the vehicle if your life is being threatened due to a car fire. If you must exit the vehicle, jump clear of your vehicle without touching it and the ground at the same time. With your feet together, hop away from your vehicle. If you witness a car collision with a power pole, do not approach the accident. By trying to help, you will put your own life at risk. Immediately contact emergency responders and stay far away from the accident.
