CROOKSTON: Fleeing incident leaves city in the dark
A driver suspected of reckless driving ran from a Polk County deputy early Sunday in Crookston and knocked over a utility pole, blacking out power to the city's 7,800 residents for about 45 minutes.
Within a few hours, the driver was in the local jail awaiting a first appearance in court on three charges, and the lights were back on.
