Car takes out power pole in collision near Skatchet Head

Some homes in the Scatchet Head area were left without cable service Friday morning after a vehicle collided with a power pole.

The driver, an unidentified “middle-aged female, was the only person in the car and was not injured in the crash, South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Wendy Moffatt said.

The wreck occurred at 6:35 a.m. at the intersection of Swede Hill Road and Blakely Avenue. A “small, gray car” lost control while driving on Swede Hill Road and collided with a power pole after veering off the road. Moffatt said the car took out the pole, and knocked nearby residents’ cable out with it.

Moffatt said the collision wasn’t serious, despite the downed power lines.

“Everything was fine when I arrived, and we left the scene shortly after,” Moffatt said. “I didn’t even get a good look at the car.”
