COLUMBUS, Ind. — County Road 200N is closed between County Roads 1050E and 1100E, and approximately 250 residents are without power due to a morning accident involving a semi-trailer hauling a load of soybeans.

Officials with Bartholomew County REMC said it could be mid-afternoon before power is restored.

Workers first had to remove a broken pole and free lines that were tangled in the overturned trailer.
