A city of Austin truck carrying a road paving machine knocked out power to 1900 customers in South Austin after it hit a utility pole Friday morning.
The accident also knocked out several transformers in the area.
A block of Barton Skyway west of Lamar was closed while crews worked to repair the lines.
The driver had to stay inside the truck until crews were able to turn off electricity because the lines were still charged.
Nobody was injured in the crash.
