ECTOR COUNTY- About 140 customers spent the afternoon in the dark thanks to a crash at Big Tex Trailers on Interstate 20.

The wreck happened after lunch between Midland and Odessa.

The driver of the SUV involved in the accident told NewsWest 9, he was on his way to the doctor and thinks he fell asleep behind the wheel when he ran off the road and crashed into the building.

He clipped a power pole and knocked out the power to folks in the area.

ONCOR tells NewsWest 9, they should have everybody back in business by 6:30p.m., if not sooner.
