An accident near Hastings this evening caused some residents to lose power.
The Nebraska State Patrol said the accident occurred just before 6 p.m. on Hwy. 6. A woman driving a black Nissan Maxima was traveling westbound when she lost control of the vehicle and drove off the road.
The car veered off the left side and broke through the guard wire. It then crashed into a power pole causing it to snap in half.
The female driver was transported to Mary Lanning Health Center with minor injuries.
Power was restored a short time later.
