Police: Man on bulldozer plows into 2 homes, power pole near Port Angeles

A man was arrested near Port Angeles Friday after he plowed a bulldozer into two homes, a truck and a power pole, according to the Clallam County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the area near Baker Street and Pioneer Road around 12:18 p.m., said Jim Borte, a spokesperson for the sheriff's office.

"(He) struck one house and apparently has knocked it off the foundation," Borte said.

Power went out in areas and traffic was backed up in both directions of Highway 101, he said.

No injuries have been reported.

Besides being "very upset," deputies have not determined a motive.
