Truck carrying oversize loads knocks off cable, causes power short

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A few residents in North Longview are experiencing a power short after a truck carrying an oversized load popped the cable off a power pole.

Some residents near the area of George Richey Road and Pine Tree Road are without power as crews attempt to fix a cable that was "popped off" by a truck carrying an oversized load. The truck, fortunately, did knock down the entire pole.

SWEPCO is on the scene and working to restore the power.

They expect power to be restored in a couple of hours.
