An accident causes quite a mess along a busy Lexington road.

A dump truck working along Athens-Boonesboro Road knocked down several wires across the roadway.

Emergency officials had to shutdown Athens-Boonesboro Road between Blue Sky Parkway and Canebrake Drive for much of the day. The road has since re-opened and travel is back to normal.

More than 200 customers lost power because of the downed lines. Kentucky Utilities says power was restored for all homes and businesses around 8:00 p.m. Thursday night.
