Macon traffic accident has injuries; power out along Zebulon Road

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is working an accident scene with injuries near the intersection of Peake and Tucker roads, E-911 officials said late Thursday night.

The accident happened at 10:38 p.m. Officials didn’t know how many cars are involved or the extent of the injuries, but traffic is being rerouted.

Near the same area, there’s a power outage along Zebulon Road, causing traffic to be diverted near Sonny Carter Elementary School. Officials said it’s thought that the power outage is due to lightning striking a transformer about 10:13 p.m.

Officials didn’t have a timetable of when power may be restored.
