Residents in LaHarpe and Humboldt were without power for several hours following a single-vehicle accident between Iola and Humboldt Thursday morning.

The Allen County Sheriff’s Department said the driver of a highway transport was northbound on 1100 Street (or Old 169) near Massachusetts Road when the truck’s tires dropped off the side of the asphalt.

“It just sucked the truck down,’ Sheriff Bryan Murphy said.
