A woman suspected of driving under the influence struck a utility pole and knocked power out to the entire village of Yellow Springs Friday night.

The wreck happened at approximately 8:15 p.m. in the area of Grinnell Road and Corry Street.

Elizabeth M. Glowik, 31, was not injured. She was taken into custody and booked into jail on suspicion of OVI, according to Yellow Springs police dispatcher Kris Collins.

Collins said the crash caused significant damages to the pole and power lines, which is the main feed for the village.

The utilities infrastructure in that area is provided by both the village and Dayton Power & Light. Village workers were working to make repairs on Corry Street and a DP&L crew also responded.

Xenia police responded to assist in directing traffic, particularly on U.S. 68, a major thoroughfare.

Collins said firefighters were visiting residents with special needs, like the elderly, to make sure they were OK.

At 11:20 p.m., Power was reportedly back on for most of the village, according to Gorgene Dawson, DP&L duty director.

Glowik's other potential charge includes obstructing official business.
