Traffic accident knocks out power

SoVaNow.com / October 22, 2012
A single vehicle crash early Sunday morning resulted in the closure of a section of Seymour Drive from its intersection with Marshall Avenue to Ellyson Avenue, as well as the loss of power to some 750 Dominion Power customers in South Boston.

Nineteen year old Deandre L. Crowder of Halifax lost control of a 2002 Chrysler mini van he was operating at 7:15 a.m. He first ran off the right side of Seymour Drive as he was headed east. He then struck a utility pole, breaking it into three pieces at its intersection with Traver Avenue.

Crowder was charged with reckless driving, failure to maintain control of the vehicle which resulted in an accident, according to a report from the South Boston Police Department.

Lights first flickered, but later went off for nearly an hour when the pole was being replaced and power was restored to local customers.
