A tight turn onto Chemin de la Petite Rivière from route Harwood in Vaudreuil-Dorion around 6:30 a.m. July 5 resulted in a broken Hydro-Québec pole and a loss of electricity for some area residents and businesses. The intersection was closed until early evening as municipal public works and Hydro-Québec crews worked to replace the pole and restore electrical power.
Sûreté du Québec (SQ) spokesperson Sgt. Ingrid Asselin said nobody was hurt in the incident.. Though traffic was initially allowed through the intersection following the accident, it was closed when Hydro-Québec trucks arrived to replace the damaged wooden pole and restore electricity. Access to Chemin de la Petite Rivière was reopened around 7 p.m.
