Single Vehicle Accident Near Outlook Apartments in North Conway Causes Power Outage

At approximately 7:00 pm on Thursday night Conway Police Department (CPD) was dispatched to a single vehicle accident into a telephone pole in the area of 3158 White Mountain Highway. When officers arrived on scene they observed a Silver 2004 Saab that had come to rest against a telephone pole located off of the southbound shoulder. After striking the pole the vehicle struck the white fence in front of the Outlook Apartments. The vehicle operator, a 17 year old female from Fryeburg, ME, was uninjured in the crash. She stated that she was traveling southbound and was blinded by a vehicle passing her in the northbound lane that failed to extinguish its high beams. It does not appear that speed or operator impairment were factors in the crash. The telephone was replaced and power was lost in the area for a short time. Two vehicles lawfully parked in the parking lot of Overlook Apartments were damaged as a result of debris from the telephone and fence that were struck by the vehicle.
