Power restored for most customers on Hart Lane

Puget Sound Energy officials are reporting that power has been restored to most customers along Hart Lane.

Only four customers on Hart Lane remain without power after a worker struck an underground power line early Wednesday. The worker, a 19-year-old man, hit the line with a pick ax while digging at about 11 a.m.

The worker was shocked when he struck the line, and was transported to a local hospital for observation.

The incident knocked out power for 75 residents in the area. Puget Sound Energy switched the customers to another circuit, restoring most power to the area.
