Crews were busy Friday morning moving power lines off of Highway 49 near School Road and Highway 53.

Mississippi Highway Patrol officials tell us a car hit a light pole Friday morning, causing some power lines to fall on Hwy 49's southbound lanes. Traffic heading southbound will be blocked intermittently until further notice.

Just two days ago, a cargo truck carrying hundreds of soda cans was involved in an accident blocking northbound traffic at this same intersection for hours.
