Car snaps pole in half, starts transformer fire behind church

Power is back on Sunday for over 50 Vectren customers including a church that were all briefly in the dark last night.

Officials say a vehicle driven by a couple who was lost ran into a guy-wire Saturday night behind Bethel Temple on Lincoln Avenue.  

That snapped the utility pole into causing the outage.

The couple is okay. All power has been restored.
