An Elma man was killed by accidentally urinating on a downed power line after a one-car crash near Montesano. Grays Harbor County sheriff’s Deputy Dave Pimentel said Monday that 50-year-old Roy Messenger was not seriously hurt after he collided with a power pole Friday night and called a relative to pull his car out of the ditch. When family members arrived they found Messenger electrocuted. Pimentel says Messenger apparently urinated into a roadside ditch but didn’t see the live wire/Associated Press. More here.
