did this wreck also cause the TV cable service outage in Springdale, Rogers, Fayetteville, etc., for over two hours (at the time I went to bed, probably longer )? no reason has been given that I've heard for that outage. Explanations for this outage also needs to be given by someone.

The outage occured on the east side of Bella Vista also. I missed the last hour of Dancing and then Castle. As much as I disliked Dish Network, I'm thinking we might have made a mistake by switching to Cox.
