Parts Of N. MLK Blvd. Closed After An Early Morning Accident

Oncor is cleaning up after an early morning accident in Wichita Falls.
It happened this morning around 8:40 in the 1200 block of north MLK Blvd.

Wichita Falls police say a pick up truck and a four door car hit a telephone pole and a fire hydrant causing a transformer  to explode and water to rush everywhere.

Parts of north MLK Blvd. are closed right now as Oncor replaces the telephone poll.

We have a call into Oncor to see when the streets will be re-opened.
