A semi-truck struck hit a power line at the intersection of Magee and Thornydale Monday, causing power outages and road closures.

With one power pole down, and two others damaged, nearly 3,400 residents lost power.

Crews were also forced to restrict traffic on Magee between Thornydale and Firethorn.

Southbound Thornydale is also closed.
