A power outage caused multiple traffic signals to stop functioning at several Killeen intersections Monday, including State Highway 195 and Stan Schlueter Loop, as well as Trimmier Road and Hallmark Avenue.

The outage happened after a bird caused a circuit to trip at a power substation in Killeen, according to electric company Oncor.

A Killeen Police Department spokesperson said the outage did not cause any accidents.
