Some residents of Prescott Valley were in for a shock Friday morning – 62 Arizona Public Service customers, among them the local Safeway and Starbucks, lost electrical power around 9 a.m.
What caused the power outage was a delivery truck, according to an APS spokesperson. The delivery truck hit a power transformer, plunging a portion of Highway 69 into darkness.
APS crews were alerted of the situation and began working on the problem, which affected mostly businesses.
APS returned power to the area at 1:48 p.m., the businesses and APS reported.
In total the power outage lasted about five hours.
