BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – If you live around West 11th Ave. and Payne Street in Bowling Green, you may have lost power this morning.

BGMU says that over 500 customers were without power waking up this morning after a car allegedly ran into an electrical pole.

Crews are reportedly on the site now to replace the pole, but power lines are down.

The municipal company is asking for travelers to find an alternate route this afternoon as crews work to replace the pole and clean the area.
