Approximately 400 Sparta and Ogdensburg residents are without power after a car accident on Route 517 knocked down power lines. The accident reportedly occurred around 4 a.m.
According to the New Jersey Herald, Century Link is working to replace the pole and JCP&L is estimating power will be restored by 12:30 p.m.
Sparta schools are operating on a two hour delay with the exception of Sparta Middle School which is closed due to the power outage.
If you're traveling toward the area of the accident a detour has been set up using West Mountain Road.
