WHITEHOUSE (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Oncor workers are trying to restore power to about 209 customers in Whitehouse this morning after a vehicle hit a utility pole.

Whitehouse Police Captain Gary Hinshaw said an 18-wheeler backed into a pole near Brookshire's about 8:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.

The incident left about 209 customers without power, and a group is working to fix the situation, said Tom Trimble, area manager with Oncor.

 

He said the initial estimated time of restoration was 11 a.m., but as of about 10:15 a.m., the estimated time of restoration was 11:30 a.m.

"We're going to try to get everybody back on as quick as we can," Trimble said.
