Accident Causes Power Outage

By  | 

A moving truck moves more than just a heavy load today, knocking down a power line.

A driver with Allied Van Lines was moving furniture from a house in the Redlands this morning, and while leaving the house, the truck made a right hand turn onto Broadway from Reed Mesa Drive clipping the power lines above.

The truck almost tore down the whole pole, knocking power out in that area for more than an hour.

Xcel Energy was on the scene restoring power and no charges are being filed against the driver of the truck.
