An accident involving truck and a utility pole has resulted in loss of power for some nearby Entergy customers and a detour for some drivers.

The accident happened just before 11 a.m. near the intersection of 11th and Blanchette Streets in Beaumont. A food delivery truck pulled down a power line located in the 1100 block of 11th Street.  Witnesses said the accident happened as the driver was backing the truck into the parking lot of the Monterey House Mexican Restaurant.

A portion of 11th street was blocked while Beaumont Fire and Rescue put out a power line fire.

An estimated 330 buildings near the accident site lost power because of the accident.

Officials say no one was injured.
