[ARCHIVED] Injured utility lineman in stable condition

The Danville Utilities lineman who was injured Tuesday morning on Sugartree Church Road in Pittsylvania County is in stable condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The injury occurred around 11 a.m. yesterday while restoring power to a customer who had lost service this weekend. The lineman was airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Brosville Volunteer Fire and EMS responded to the incident.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleague,” Jason Grey, director of utilities, said today. “There is nothing more important than the safety of our workers and this incident is a tragic reminder of the hazards we face in the work we do.”

Grey said the department will conduct an internal investigation into the incident and will work with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and other authorities in their investigation.
