A car accident causes local businesses to lose power.

Saturday night a red Dodge Ram veered off the road right into a high voltage transformer and tore out a water line. This happened around 11 o'clock last night near F Road and 25 Road. The accident caused several local businesses to lose power, however most were closed at the time and were not effected.

Traffic was restricted to one lane on F Road for more than one hour. The driver of the truck was taken to the police station for questioning, and officials are looking into whether alcohol played a factor in this one car accident.
