Some power outages remain in northeast Kent Co. after car hits power pole

ALGOMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Consumers Energy Outage Map showed about 20 remaining electrical outages near the Algoma/Courtland township border as of 9 a.m. Saturday, following car-into-utility pole crash in northeastern Kent County late Friday night.

The Kent County Dispatch Authority had told FOX 17 the car hit the power pole at 13 Mile Road NE and Myers Lake Avenue around 10:37 p.m. Friday, knocking down some power lines – and knocking out electrical service for utility customers in the immediate area. But no injuries were reported.

Consumers had originally estimated the lights would be back on for everyone by 5:15 a.m. Saturday, but the restoration time was pushed back to late Saturday morning.

There’s no word from police yet how it happened, how many vehicles were involved and who was driving.
