SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

A car accident knocked out power to a senior living complex in South City, a facility where many residents rely on oxygen.

A car hit a pole on south Broadway near I-55, which knocked out power to 1,000 customers including the Maryville Gardens Apartments on Nebraska Avenue. The accident occurred around 6:00 p.m.

“We called 911 and got them here right away. They were here right away,” said Wanda Gross, Maryville Gardens resident.

Paramedics went door-to-door to check on residents.

Roughly six residents who depend on oxygen were treated and assisted quickly. Power was restored around 9:30 p.m.
