Car accident causes power outage in parts of Joplin, Webb City, Duquesne

JOPLIN, Mo. — An early-morning traffic accident on Newman Road near an Empire District Electric Co. substation has impacted a transmission line, causing a power outage to about 8,000 utility customers in parts of north Joplin, Webb City and Duquesne, according to Amy Bass, spokesperson for the utility.

She said Empire does not have an estimate on the repairs, or when power will be restored, but Bass said crews are working on a bypass now.
