The wires falling led to a brush fire igniting which caused some damage to a nearby property along Lakehurst Road.

Police said that JCP&L responded to the scene and were able to get power back on in the area while the Toms River Fire Co. and New Jersey Forest Fire Service put out the flames.

McKinnon was issued citations for failure to maintain a lane and careless driving and police said that she refused medical treatment.
