EL PASO- An accident on El Paso’s South side knocked out power to the area this afternoon.

Witnesses say a moving van clipped some overhead power lines. El Paso electric crews got right on it with repairs.The pastor of a nearby church says the outage caused problems for some young parishioners.

"We have a daycare here. And that was the one we've been out of business since 11:00 a.m. but we moved the children over to the chapel and without air conditioning it's kind of going okay."

We asked El Paso electric about the power line accident and spokeswoman Teresa Souza says she didn't know anything about it.
