Car Accident Causes Power Outage in Lake Anne on Saturday

The Lake Anne community lost power for more than seven hours on Saturday night.

The power outage started around 7 p.m. on Jan. 12 after a vehicle ran into a pad-mounted transformer, Charles Penn, Sr., a spokesman for Dominion Energy, told Reston Now.

The accident happened right around when roads throughout Reston became snow-covered during the weekend’s winter storm.

Power was restored at 2:15 a.m. on Sunday (Jan. 13). The outage affected 76 customers, he said.

Readers first alerted Reston Now to the power outage earlier this week.
