POTTSBORO, Texas (KTEN) — A downed power line near Pottsboro Middle School forced the closure of Cardinal Lane just before class pickup time on Tuesday afternoon.

Dirt was being moved by workers on the new campus when the rotted utility pole uprooted and collapsed onto the road between FM 120 and Jewel Street. 

Pottsboro police said there were no electrical outages, but some oil and chemicals spilled from the broken transformer that toppled with the pole.
