The lights went out for many in the Cummings Research Park area Friday, and utilities crews say a vehicle wreck was the cause of it.

Huntsville Utilities says the wreck did not result in any injuries, but there was damage to the outside of the vehicle as a result of electricity.

The public utility says no one was injured, but the situation could have been much worse.

Crews were able to make the necessary repairs to restore power shortly after it went out.
