Okotoks RCMP, municipal enforcement, and fire services, as well as Fortis Alberta, responded to a downed power pole this afternoon (May 23).

It happened in the alley behind 52 North Railway Street, between Lineham Avenue and Alberta Avenue.

Luckily no one was injured.

Officer Raffen with Okotoks Municipal Enforcement says a vehicle struck the pole, which landed on two parked vehicles nearby.

"The power pole snapped and came down, damaging two vehicles. At first, we were concerned that there could still be power running through the lines and we were concerned about the safety of some of the residents and patrons in the area, however, Fortis has arrived on scene and said there's no significant danger to the public right now."

He's advising people to stay away from the area as Fortis crews work to repair the damage.
