A two-car collision at Catalona Avenue and Lake Drive knocked out power to about 600 customers Wednesday afternoon and evening, said David Lambert, manager of member relations for Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative. A utility pole was broken in the crash about 4:30 p.m. It took more than five hours to fix the problem. "This was a completely unpredictable outage," resident Renee Groening said in an e-mail. "The food I was cooking for dinner was ruined and if the outage had lasted a little longer we would have lost everything in our freezer and fridge."
