by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — No details are available quite yet on the strange accident which left the city of Wellington without electrical power for about an hour and no Internet for even longer.
Here is what we know. Around 3:30 p.m. today, a white minivan appears to have collided with a guideline wire on 4th Street and U.S. 81. No one was hurt.
“The Wellington City Utility Crews worked expediently to get the power back on,” Interim City Manager Shane Shields said.
Sumner Newscow will provide more information on the accident when it becomes available.
