Downed Power Line Shuts Down Versailles Road

A downed power line shut down Versailles Road near New Circle Monday morning. 

Fire officials said strong winds caused a tree to fall on the power line around 10:15 a.m. 

When fire crews and police arrived they found the power line across all six lanes of traffic. 

Police on the scene said they believe the line is a higher voltage transmission line.

Police said the road would be closed for hours. Kentucky Utilities said crews are working to restore power, but weren’t able to estimate a time.
