Greater Sudbury Hydro crews will be on scene in the area of Bancroft Drive and the Kingsway in Minnow Lake in order to replace a hydro pole.

A hydro pole was damaged early Monday morning after it was struck by a vehicle, knocking power offline for around 350 customers.

The power outage affected customers who live on Ferndale, Parkdale, Dundas, Hargreaves, Hillsborough, Clearview, Glendale and Lonsdale.

Greater Sudbury Hydro now says power has been restored to 340 of the 350 affected customers. The remaining 10 customers, in the Bancroft and Franklin areas, will likely have power restored sometime this afternoon.

Original story:

Greater Sudbury Hydro said power should be restored to around 350 customers in the Minnow Lake area by 8 a.m. after an outage early this morning caused by a vehicle hitting a hydro pole.

The collision that caused the outage occurred at around 3 a.m. Monday near the intersection of Bancroft and The Kingsway.

Greater Sudbury Police reported a single-vehicle collision around that time that closed Bancroft Drive between Ferndale Avenue and The Kingsway. No word from police on whether the road has been reopened.

The power outage affected customers who live on Ferndale, Parkdale, Dundas, Hargreaves, Hillsborough, Clearview, Glendale and Lonsdale.

Crews are in the process of rerouting power for affected customers.
