NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WANE) — Power was cut to hundreds in New Haven early Tuesday after a vehicle hit a pair of utility poles.

An I&M outage map shows the area of a power outage Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019.

The crash happened along Lincoln Highway West, between Hartzell Road and the parking lot of Hall’s Commissary Restaurant. The stretch was closed to traffic while crews worked to repair the poles.

As of 2:15 pm an I&M outage map showed power had been restored. The outage stretched from Hartzell Road northeast to nearly Rose Avenue.

New Haven High School and New Haven Middle School, as well as the East Allen County Schools administration building, were impacted, WANE 15 learned. Power was restored to those buildings soon after, though.
