HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

An estimated 115 Hinesville customers are without power Wednesday after an accident ripped down power lines.

A tractor-trailer picking up shopping carts for a local business was making its way through the Eagle Creek Mobile Home Park at 300 Brantley Dr. when it was unknowingly caught on power lines and drove away, pulling down between five and eight lines.

One power line pole landed on an unoccupied mobile home, and wires were draped over homes and vehicles in the complex.

Georgia Power is on the scene working to restore power, and according to the outage map the power outage is contained to the mobile home park.

There were no injuries.
