Saskpower crews are busy in downtown Regina restoring power to an area around the 2100 block of Cornwall after an accident involving a Loraas garbage truck Monday morning.
Just after 7, the truck backed into a power pole in a back alley at 13th and Cornwall.
The pole came down on the back half of the truck trapping the driver inside for a short time, but he was removed safely.
While power was out for a good chunk of the downtown area for a while Monday morning, most of it is back with the exception of the immediate area around the accident.
9:39 AM: UPDATE 1: Outage: Regina: Centre Square, Downtown. Most customers are restored, however due to significant damage customers on the 2100 blk of Cornwall and Scarth will be off until approx 3:00pm until crews finish repairs. #skoutage
