A vehicle that collided with a power pole Wednesday evening left some Langley-area residents in the dark.

There were no injuries in the accident.

The collision occurred around 9 p.m. at the intersection of Amble Road and Brainers Road. According to South Whidbey Fire EMS Deputy Chief Jon Beck, the vehicle failed to negotiate a turn and lost control, hitting a power pole’s support pole. The wreck didn’t cause the power pole to topple, but enough damage was done to impact power in the area.

The collision knocked out neighbors’ electricity for 30 minutes.

Responders closed off both lanes of the intersection following the collision. The roads were cleared up shortly after.
