Staff Report

MIDLAND COUNTY - It was pretty dark around the NewsWest 9 studios on Wednesday night as we took a power hit.

The cause? A driver took out a light pole on Wednesday afternoon on West County Road 127.

Police tell NewsWest 9, they had to close down the road because there were still some hot wires sparking.

Buildings on the north side of south county road 1286 are without power.

NewsWest 9 lost power for about 20 minutes.
