A vehicle operated by Cody M. Litvinoff, 25, was traveling on County Highway J this morning when, according to Woodruff Police Chief Leonard Drewsen, the motorist swerved to avoid a deer, left the roadway and struck and damaged a power pole. 

The impact from the accident knocked out power to 4,306 Wisconsin Public Service customers - nearly 19 percent of all WPS customers.

The Dodge Ram truck being operated by Litvinoff clipped the pole and pushed the vehicle's fender into the wheel and knocked the side mirror off the truck. 

Litvinoff was not injured in the accident. 


Dan Tannah of WPS estimated that power would be restored by 9 a.m. this morning.
