Downed power lines shut down Daviess County highway

Posted: Updated:

Early Tuesday morning crews were on the scene of some downed power lines in Daviess County.

Highway 231 was shut down in both directions near the Dollar General while crews repaired some power lines. Dispatchers say they received a call just after 3 A.M.

We're told the road opened back up at 5 Tuesday morning.

When the deputy arrived on scene, he told 14 News that an SUV was on its top was in a field, but that no one was in the car. Deputies are still looking for that driver.

According to dispatchers, those low lines were hit sometime between when the call came in and when the deputy got there.

Dispatchers say they aren't aware of any outages at this time.
