VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - An accident on E. Rio Grande Avenue on Friday morning will impact Duke Energy customers in the area.

Vigo County Sheriff’s Office reports a truck sideswiped a high voltage pole around 9 a.m. on E. Rio Grande. This caused the pole to snap, land in a yard and catch the yard on fire.

There were no injuries reported with this accident but a section of E. Rio Grande will be shut down for about six hours. That is while Duke Energy replaces the pole.

E. Rio Grande Avenue will be shut down between N. Stuthard Street to Gallagher Road.

Duke Energy reports an estimated 300 customers could lose power for some time while the repair work is being done. This will mostly be in the Fontanet area.
