Dump Truck Knocks Down Utility Poles in Gibson Co.

- An accident in Gibson County leaves hundreds without power. The accident happened a little before 2:00 p.m. near the intersection of Highway 168 and Highway 41 in Fort Branch.

Deputies say a dump truck accidentally raised the bed of the truck while pulling out of a nearby concrete business. There were no injuries, but the driver caught a power line and broke two utility poles.

Around 900 customers were without power for about two hours, but Vectren says power has been restored.
