The truck, which was reportedly delivering packages for Amazon struck the pole causing it to fall and interrupt power to almost all of Kirbyville.

Power to almost all of Kirbyville was interrupted on Wednesday, when a truck ran off the road and hit an electrical pole in front of the Central Baptist Church on Highway 96.

Firemen and other emergency crews were dispatched to the location shortly before noon, when it was reported that the crash had occurred.

Word is that the unidentified driver of the truck miraculously escaped injury.

Workers from the City of Kirbyville's Light and Power Department worked feverishly to restore power and soon had the lights back on.
