OKLAHOMA CITY – A roadway in northwest Oklahoma City is back open after power lines were reported to be down on a vehicle in the area.

Around 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oklahoma City firefighters responded to a report of downed power lines near N.W. 143rd and N. Council Rd.

Officials determined that the power lines came down on a vehicle in the area.

Authorities say they were forced to close Council Rd. in both directions in order to clear the scene.

Officials on the scene tell News 4 that a dump truck was leaving a nearby parking lot and snagged some power lines.

Initially, authorities believed the lines were power lines but say they turned out to be fiber optic lines.
