Downed telephone pole closes street in Concord

CONCORD -- Two teens are under arrest after an accident on East Side Drive that downed a telephone pole Thursday morning and closed the road between Eastman and Portsmouth streets.

Samuel Harkins, 18, of Concord, was arrested for aggravated DWI, underage DWI, conduct after an accident and unlawful possession of alcohol by a minor.

Michael Allen, also 18 and of Concord, was charged with unlawful possession of alcohol by a minor and possession of a controlled drug.

The two suffered minor injuries, but police said they declined medical attention. The crash, which happened near 257 East Side Drive early in the morning, remains under investigation.

Police said the road was closed because of live wires on the road.

Harkins is free on $6,000 personal recognizance bail, while Allen's bail is $1,500 personal recognizance.

Both are to be arraigned in 6th Circuit Court, Concord District Division, Harkins on Nov. 4 and Allen on Dec. 2.
