Bird knocks down power line, causes power outage

A bird on a wire caused a power outage and shocked a driver in Arkansas.

Jerry Cunningham says he was heading down a road in Texarkana when something hit his car, cracked the windshield and sent sparks flying.

“It sent a whole bunch of sparks into the street. I had all my windows and my sunroof open. Yeah. That’s where I got them burns from. It hurt like crazy.”

Official say a buzzard landed on a ground wire, then fell on a 12-thousand volt transmission line. About 12-hundred customers were without power for about an hour.
