Excavator Hits Power Lines In Saranac Lake

An excavator tangled in power lines at the Saranac Lake village Department of Public Works garage at the end of Van Buren Street on Thursday, breaking a power line pole and causing a minor outage in that neighborhood. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports the driver of the excavator tangled in the charged lines was able to leave the vehicle unharmed, according to Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department Head Driver Rick Yorkey, but only after National Grid shut off power to the lines.
