DTE truck causes outages to Consumers customers

EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A Consumers Energy spokeswoman says hundreds of her company's customers in western Michigan lost power when a DTE Energy truck failed to lower its boom and brought down three utility poles.
   
Debra Dodd says no one was injured when the DTE truck snagged some power lines and toppled the poles around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in East Grand Rapids.
   
She says the poles fell on some parked cars.
   
According to Dodd, DTE had been doing work in the area, and the driver failed to completely lower and stow the truck's boom.
   
Around 1,800 Consumers customers lost power.
   
Dodd says all but two customers have had their power restored as of Thursday morning.
   
DTE Energy spokesman Alejandro Bodipo-Memba says the utility is looking into the incident.
