TULSA - PSO officials say all power should be back on near 26th and Memorial in Tulsa about 6 p.m. after a moving truck pulled down two power poles in the area, putting 135 in the dark. 

Around 12:30 p.m., a Ryder moving truck backed into the lines of two power poles at Skelly Dr. and 87th E. Ave. in midtown Tulsa and pulled the poles to the ground, PSO says.

That knocked out 135 customer's electricity. Much of the power was restored within an hour of the report with only 52 without service.

Crews were working to replace the poles and were expected to have the work done by early evening.
