Electrical line knocked down; stops traffic

Rock Harbor – A power line was knocked down Saturday morning, possibly by a backhoe working in the area of the 95 mile marker of Highway U.S. One.

Traffic was disrupted in both directions at 9 a.m. for about 45 minutes as crews from Florida Keys Electric Co-op responded to deal with the situation. The electrical line reportedly fell across two vehicles, a jeep and a recreational vehicle, both of which reportedly had occupants inside. No one was injured in the incident, and the roadway was cleared and open to traffic by 9:45 a.m.
