CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Several businesses are closed in Cape Girardeau due to a big truck knocking down a power line. This happened out on Siemers Drive.

Police say an asphalt truck hit a utility pole out in front of Sam's Club around 11:45 a.m.

This caused the power to go at some of the business in the area. Police say the movie theater also lost power.

Police were told the power would be out 4 to 6 hours.
