UPDATE: Big Rig Takes Out Traffic Light in Odessa

ODESSA - Some downed power lines in downtown Odessa caused a big mess.     

An 18-wheeler brought the wires and poles crashing down at 8th and Grant around 8:00 Thursday night.

Crews say the big rig didn't clear the traffic light and tore it down taking power lines down with it.     

Cable One says 500 customers lost service after their fiber optic cable was snapped. Cable One has since restored service.     

No one was hurt, but the truck driver was ticketed.
