Power was still out in parts of east Tulsa Tuesday evening after a roofing truck ran into a utility pole.

A witness say workers were unloading materials from the truck onto the roof of a house near 32nd and Memorial, when the truck backed up with its boom still raised. The boom got caught on two sets of wires, pulling down a utility pole and knocking out power to the entire neighborhood.

Crews spent the afternoon working to get all the power back on. No one was hurt.
