The wet weather caused problems for some drivers and residents in South Tulsa Monday morning.

An accident at 47th and Harvard knocked out power to 800 customers. Police say a man was driving southbound when his SUV slid into a pole. The impact knocked down electrical wires and caused several traffic lights and homes to go dark.

Meanwhile, a woman's car ran into a fire truck responding to the scene. That accident happened at Skelly Drive and Harvard.

The driver told officers she wasn't aware the traffic lights were not working.

Power has since been restored to the area.
