Updated 1:05 p.m.: Oncor is expecting to have power fully restored to more than 4,000 Harker Heights customers by about 1:30 p.m. today.
The outage was caused by a vehicle colliding with an electrical pole at Farm-to-Market 2410 and Cedar Knob Road, said Carl Green, an area manager for Oncor.
Some power has been restored to some customers, but crews are working to restore power to all customers in that area, Green said.
Farm-to-Market 2410 is closed to traffic while the repair is underway, according to the Harker Heights police department.
The driver of the vehicle is "OK," stated the department.

“We are trouble-checking it now,” said Carl Green, an area manager or Oncor. “It is a pretty good outage. There is about 4,000 customers affected.”
Green didn't know a cause of the power outage and was just alerted to the issue around 11:45 a.m., he said.
According to Oncor’s website the power is anticipated to be back on by 2:30 p.m.
Several other areas throughout Central Texas are showing smaller outages as well, each affecting two to 30 customers, the website stated.

The scattered outages would be resolved and power restored throughout the day, he said.
