If you lost cable Friday night, you were not alone. A truck accident in Washoe Valley knocked out Charter Cable service to Washoe Valley, Carson City, Fernley, Fallon, Minden, Gardnerville, Dayton, and South Lake Tahoe.
At about 4:45 Friday night a semi-truck accident near the entrance to Washoe State Park knocked down four service polls. Video, high speed internet, and telephone services were all affected.
Both Sierra Pacific and Charter personnel responded to the scene to restore services.
There were no injuries in the wreck.
