A man driving down Eastern Bypass around 1:00 a.m. Thursday ran off the road and took out an underground power relay.

The crash damaged a second relay and tripped a breaker at the main substation in the area.  800 homes near the Mallard’s Landing subdivision lost power.  Huntsville Utilities made a temporary fix, but will work on a permanent fix later in the day.
