The lights went off around Everhart and McArdle Monday morning after a truck ran into some power lines in the area.

It happened around 3:30AM on Monday when the driver of a dump truck didn't lower the bed and ran into the lines. Power was knocked out to several homes and businesses in the area. As of 8:00AM Monday, AEP reported 15 customers were in the dark.

Crews are currently working at the intersection of Everhart & Mt. Vernon, they say power should be restored by 10:00AM.
