Car crash knocks out electrical transmission feeder lines, darkening parts of Tulsa – Tulsa World

June 25, 2022 by No Comments

Electrical power in homes and businesses across the Tulsa area flickered and thousands of customers were left without power after a car hit a power pole Friday evening.

Public Service Company of Oklahoma spokesman Wayne Greene said “a transmission wire went out and took out three feeder lines” about 8 p.m.”

PSO workers had restored power to about 1,870 customers by shortly before 9 p.m., but about 2,823 customers remained without power, he said.

“We hope to have all customers back in service by 1 a.m.,” Greene said.

Meanwhile, traffic lights across a large swath of the city were either flashing red or out altogether, leaving motorists without traffic control at major intersections.
