Heavy Truck Takes Down Utility Pole In Lindora (Santa Ana)


(QCOSTARICA) An early morning mishap by a tracker trailer running into an electrical post choked off this morning access to the main road to and from Lindora (Santa Ana).

The accident was reported around 4:30am, when the big rig for reasons yet unknown, snapped a utility pole in the area in front of El Lagar, on the road called “radial de Lindora”,  a few hundred meters north of the ruta 27.

By 7:00am,  traffic police on the scene began allowing vehicles to pass through the area, but at a snails pace, causing tremendous traffic congestion, more than nornal for the usual rush hour congestion for the area.

The route is a major connector from the Santa Ana, Escazu and other points to Alajuela and Heredia, including the international airport.

The Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL) says residents and business in the area will have to wait to this afternoon before full electrical power is restored to the area, says the. CNFL director Luis Fernando Andres estimates the work will be complete by 3:00pm.
