Collision causes power outage in Roma

A TRUCK colliding with a power pole on the Warrego Hwy this morning has left hundreds of Roma residents without power.

The incident occurred at around 8.42pm and left 290 Ergon Energy customers without power.

An Ergon Energy spokesperson said there are still currently 75 customers in Arthur St, Bowen St, Hawthorne St, McDowall St, Quintin St and the Warrego Hwy without power and at this stage they don't have an estimated restoration time.

Power was restored to just over 200 customers originally affected in other parts of Roma about an hour after the incident occurred.
