MIDLAND - Power lines are finally back up and running in Midland after a morning accident tore one down.

Officials say a truck hit a power pole at Illinois and Dotson and snagged a cable line.

The impact broke the pole.

ONCOR crews had to replace that pole, because when it snapped, a wire was too close to the ground.

Only about ten customers lost power, and most of them only lost power for about an hour.

Three blocks on Illinois were shut down, but everything was back to normal by lunch-time.
