Car knocks out power to 1,000+

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The lights are back on after a car knocked out power to more than a thousand homes in Waterloo.

Police tell us a car hit a guide wire going from a utility pole into the ground around 11:00 pm Monday night. It happened in front of Cadillac Lanes on La Porte Road in Waterloo. That knocked out electricity to more than 1140 customers in surrounding neighborhoods. MidAmerican crews restored electricity just after midnight Monday morning.
