Citation Issued In State Fair Crash
40 year-old Trent Johnston of Gonvick, Minnesota has received a citation for inattentive driving. Johnston was making a turn onto Como Avenue when he struck a power pole, knocking live wires onto two men on the ground. One of them, 32 year-old parking lot attendant Spencer Jackson of St Paul, spent the night at Regions Hospital in fair condition. The other man was treated and released. The incident caused the first of two power outages at the fair yesterday. The first lasted 3 and a half hours; the second, which lasted about 1 hour, was unrelated to the first.
