Alternating traffic has resumed at Highway 169 in Black Diamond Wednesday, after a vehicle struck a power pole near the 31000 block of 3rd Avenue earlier that morning.
Three people were taken to local hospitals, one by airlift, after the accident according to Puget Sound Fire Captain Joe Root.
Crews were dispatched at about 8:17 a.m. when a single vehicle struck a power pole, Root said. The road was closed for several hours while crews worked on repairs, which will ultimately involve replacing the struck pole entirely, according to a police officer on the scene.
By 3 p.m., crews were still working but had opened one lane of traffic and were alternating motorists through the area. A more specific time table of when crews expected to have it full reopened was not immediately available.
More information on the crash was also not immediately available.
