Car accident disrupts Internet in Marion County

A vehicle accident involving two pickup trucks in Ellis County near Victoria damaged an Eagle Communications fiber optic splice box.

The collision cut the fiber optic line the box connected, disabling Eagle Communications Internet in Marion County at 5 p.m. Service was not restored until 1:30 a.m. when the line was fixed, Eagle general manager Travis Kohlrus said.

An Eagle crew arrived at the scene at 5:30 p.m. and crews stayed at the site through 4 a.m., Kohlrus added.
