There are currently power outages being experienced in Delhi following a single vehicle collision.

Just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday emergency services responded to a report of a rollover collision where a single vehicle collided with a utility pole.

Police say the driver was travelling north on Western Ave. when they lost control and struck the pole.

The driver has been transported to a local area hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

Western Ave. is currently closed between Talbot Rd. and Main St. in Delhi. This is usually the detour route for Mill St. traffic, but police are encouraging drivers to take the Mill St. exit until the collision is cleared.

Hydro One has turned off power in the area to safely clear the vehicle out from under the pole.

“Please slow down, please pay attention,” said Const. Ed Sanchuk in a video posted to social media. “The good news is that this driver only suffered minor injuries.”
