Casper, WY (AP) - A construction crane that struck a power line knocked out electricity to more than 2,100 Rocky Mountain Power customers in Casper and Bar Nunn.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports the accident happened at about 10:40 a.m. Tuesday, and electricity was restored to all but 43 customers within an hour.

Rocky Mountain Power spokesman Jeff Hymas says utility crews reconnected power faster than anticipated.
