Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201495066Event: 01/12/2011Burn - Electrical Fault In Overhead Power Line
A power line crew was replacing a damaged crossarm on a utility pole. The pole supported two overhead power lines--a 70-kilovolt power line at the top and a single-phase 12-kilovolt power line about a meter lower. A power line worker on the crew had removed the 12-kilovolt conductor and neutral from the crossarm. As he swung the phase conductor to anchor it to the pole, it contacted the 70-kilovolt power line, causing an electrical fault. The ensuing electric arc burned the employee. He was hospitalized for his injuries.
