Car Wreck May Have Cause Power Outages

Repairs have been made and everything is back to normal...But earlier today...about 12-hundred people in south Amarillo were without power for a few hours.

NewsChannel 10 received several calls this morning about the outage..... We then called Wes Reeves with Xcel energy. 

Reeves says a switch at Hillside and Coulter caught fire  around seven this morning....and caused the outage.

Workers think that happened because of a car wreck from last week which damaged some of their property.
