Criminal Sentence 61: Doubly Not Proofread

From an article about a local summer storm:

"SRP shut off power the lines so people to escape their vehicles safely."

I don't usually find two dumb errors in one sentence. Bottom line: failure to proofread.

It sounds as if an English learner, not a professional journalist, wrote this sentence. It's criminal!
