Crash leads to power outaged and possibly fire

Posted by wlpo on October 1, 2011

It was a really dark night for the far east side of La Salle.  Power was knocked out to more than 100 homes after a man crashed into a utility pole just before 1am Saturday.

It happened at Route 6 and Richard Hallett Road.  David Shrimplin of Spring Valley was taken to a near by hospital for injuries.  He was also given tickets for not slowing down to avoid a crash and improper lane usage.

The crash is though to be what started a fire that Utica Firefighter busy throughout the morning.
