Several West Hattiesburg businesses lost power Saturday after a semi-trailer severed a utility pole around 5:30 p.m.
Hattiesburg Fire Department officials said the driver of the truck was looking for a place to park for the night off O'Ferrell Street when the truck's cargo caught a power line, causing the pole to snap and cut off electricity to businesses including Buffalo Wild Wings and Home Depot.
Mississippi Power Company had power restored to those customers by 8:30. Company representatives said power should be restored to all customers within a few hours.
The driver of the truck was not hurt.
He was transporting oil field equipment from Texas to West Virginia.
