(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – Around 50 people lost power in Idaho Falls Wednesday when a dump truck knocked down two power poles near Edgemont Elementary.  Investigators say the driver of the dump truck drove away from a construction site without lowering down the bed. The truck snagged power and cable lines, bringing down two utility poles in the process. A nearby transformer was also damaged, and crews spent much of the afternoon working to get things back up and running. No injuries were reported.
