Power remains out tonight for a section of Morgan and Brownlee near Christus Spohn Shoreline.

According to police, around 7:30 this evening, a driver lost control of their vehicle and crashed into a power pole.

Investigators say speed and wet conditions on the road may have led to the accident.

The driver was taken to the nearby hospital where he is expected to be okay.

AEP crews are currently working on fixing that pole and restoring power.
