Second traffic accident this month causes power outage in downtown Park Rapids
Four hundred Park Rapids customers were without power early Sunday morning when a car struck a power pole downtown.
The outage began shortly before 1:30 a.m., said Minnesota Power spokesperson Kelley Eldien. Power was restored to 90 percent of the customers after an hour, but power officials had to take the city off power again around 7 a.m. to complete repairs.
Power was fully restored by 7:20 a.m.
