Park City police blotter: Driver hits power box
The Park City Police Department on Friday, May 21, at 1:03 p.m. logged a case from the 10 a.m. hour that day of a driver hitting a power box at or close to the intersection of Aerie Drive and Mellow Mountain Road.
The police logs indicated residences nearby lost power as a result of the accident. The logs did not provide details about the accident. The incident, though, was logged as a hit-and-run case.
In an unrelated case, on Wednesday, May 19 at 3:25 p.m., the police were told a truck on Park Avenue “ripped a bunch of line off from above” the house of the person who contacted the authorities. The person was unsure whether it was a power line that was hit.
