An accident on North Pine Street/LA Hwy 171 in front of Stines around 11:00 p.m. Monday, February 24, 2020, caused traffic issues for several hours.
A vehicle struck a power pole at the railroad crossing that caused power lines to fall. Shortly after a train caught the low power lines, pulling even more power poles down.
Motorists were asked to detour around the city using Hwy 3226 or Hwy 1146 as from that location, there are no streets within the city that would allow drivers to avoid the area.
The road was reported as open about 3:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 25, 2020. No injuries were reported.
