Electrical problems following crash shut down Wood Mode today

KREAMER - A mid-day crash and circuit malfunction kept 1,050 Wood Mode Employees from the job today, said Tom Morgensen, the company's vice president of

human resources.

Power at the Snyder County plant was cut off after a one-vehicle crash on Route 522 at 11:15 a.m. Monday, Morgensen said. However, once power was restored, a faulty switch gear on the company's internal circuit caused an electrical outage, which forced Wood Mode to suspend operations for the day.

"We don't have power to the plant and main office ... our phone and computer systems are running on back-up generators," Morgensen said.

The problems at the plant are being worked on today and the company hopes to have employees return to work tomorrow, Morgensen said.
