A two car crash at Union and Nickerson early yesterday (Sunday) morning took out power to a good sized section of the Fairplain area and sent a Benton Harbor man and woman to the hospital. Kevin Lewis was reported to be in critical but stable condition at last check with multiple broken bones and internal injuries. Priscilla Williams had her jaw broken. Benton Township police tell WSJM news that Jay Kovalska was apparently passing another vehicle on Nickerson when Lewis pulled out of Union heading the other way. Kovalska's pickup hit Lewis and the crash took out a power pole, damaging a transformer and shutting off the lights for about 5000 people. Kovalska, who wasn't hurt, was arrested on possible charges of reckless driving and driving under the influence.
