CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — American Electric Power Texas crews were called to South Staples Street and Carmel Parkway Friday morning after they said a dump truck knocked down power lines and a power pole.

AEP crews said the incident happened while the dump truck driver was trying to dump a blue recycling bin behind the Wallbangers restuarant in that area.

Customers told 3News that power began to come back on soon after 10 a.m. Friday.
