HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Power is expected to be out for several hours for residents living near Highway 6 and W. Little York Road after a vehicle knocked down a power line early Sunday morning.

The estimated repair time is about 3 p.m., according to CenterPoint.

This is all due to a single vehicle crash in the area.

The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department said a car drove off the road, hit a power line and then fell off an overpass into Langham Creek near the 6000 block of N SH 6.
