The accident occurred at about 7:45 p.m. in the 2200 block of Gen. Cavazos Blvd., AEP spokesman Ken Griffin said. Work crews were still at the scene more than two hours after the accident occurred, but were working to reroute power to most of the customers impacted, he said.
Griffin said it was unclear when power might be restored for all customers, but added crews were working to do so as quickly as possible. Portions of Naval Air Station-Kingsville were impacted by the outage, according to Public Affairs Officer Fifi Kieschnick, but power had been restored as of 9:40 p.m.
The details of the car accident were not immediately available.
