A truck belonging to Monument Transportation was hit by a power line and dragged nearly a quarter mile along Interstate 70 near the exit to Colorado Highway 65 in De Beque Canyon around 1 p.m. Thursday.
A small jet allegedly made contact with the overhead power line causing the line to snap, fall and break the windshields of several cars and the truck, according to Colorado State Patrol.
Xcel Energy is at the scene making repairs and estimates power will be restored shortly after 3 p.m.
The pilot of the plane landed safely at Grand Junction Regional Airport.
