Truck accident causes power outage

ROTHSCHILD, Wis (WSAU)   A truck knocked over a utility pole, causing a power outage that impacted around 500 Wisconsin Public Service customers in Rothschild and Schofield. The accident happened just before 9pm at Alderson Street and Grossman Drive in Rothschild.

WPS said it would take several hours to restore electricity to the area. Most had their lights back on before midnight.

As of 3am there were 25 homes without electricity in Schofield.

WPS is also working on a separate outage that has left 164 people without power in Three Lakes. The cause of that problem isn't clear.
