Two-Vehicle Crash Prompts Power Outage

A two-vehicle crash prompted a power outage in Salina

According to Salina Police Sergeant Matthew Gawith, the crash occurred on the 900 block of S Ohio Tuesday evening.

A 2017 Nissan Rogue rear-ended a 2004 Subaru Forester at 5:08 pm. Both vehicles were traveling on the outside lane going southbound on Ohio.

After the crash, the driver of the Subaru Forester, a 56-year old Salina man, went over the west curbline of Ohio and hit a sign.

The driver of the Nissan Rogue, a 51-year old Salina woman, went over the east curbline through the intersection of Ohio and Republic. The SUV struck a pole, causing it to fall down and hit a parked car in a parking lot. Some businesses and houses in the area lost power.

Sgt. Gawith tells KSAL, the 56-year old man of the Subaru suffered minor injuries, while the 51-year woman of the Nissan suffered no injuries.
