About 1,445 Flint Energies customers lost power at the peak of an outage early Tuesday morning, a spokeswoman for the electric cooperative said Tuesday.
The 3:45 a.m. outage affected customers northwest of Gunn Road at U.S. 41 in the Centerville and Byron areas, said Kelly Trapnell, interim manager of public relations.
The power outage was attributed to a motorist running a stop sign at U.S. 41 and the Dunbar Road extension due to dense early morning fog and hitting a utility pole, Houston County sheriff’s Sgt. Jim Adams said.
The pole did not need to be replaced but an electric wire was downed in the accident, Trapnell said.
Never miss a local story.
Power was restored by 5:45 a.m., she said.
