Car Collided With A Transformer Blacking Out Roads Around Eastway In Sale

A silver car driven by a male crashed into an electrical box blacking out many roads around Walton Road and Eastway in Sale tonight.


Electricity NW say full power will be restored to all properties by 8am Monday Nov 7, although we are told power was restored in the early hours.

A male has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drink and drugs but we can confirm that no one was injured in the crash, fire crews attended and made things safe at around 6.40pm.


Roads affected by the black out are Eastway, A quarter of Walton Road and its side roads, Homelands Road onwards is fine, police are saying if you have to go into the area to be very careful as you cannot see anything.

Trafford Council are also on the scene helping residents, although we did not see any Trafford vans and some residents have told us that they did not come out and was concerned for vulnerable people having no electricity.
