Leesville Road reopens after early morning accident
Posted December 28, 2016
Durham, N.C. — Almost 2,000 Duke Energy customers in Durham were without power Wednesday morning after a tractor-trailer knocked down power lines.
Authorities closed Leesville Road between U.S. Highway 70 and Doc Nichols Road when the truck hit the lines around 3 a.m. One lane was reopened by 9:30 a.m., but a full restoration took until mid-afternoon.
The Duke Energy website estimated power would be restored around noon.
