A construction accident Wednesday night is the reason why some residents didn't have service. By Thursday morning, the problem had been resolved.

PASADENA, Texas (KTRK) -- Water has been restored to areas in Pasadena that saw an outage due to an accident involving a contractor Wednesday night, city officials said.

The video above is from a previous report.

The accident happened Wednesday night on Preston at Southmore. Details of what happened were not elaborated.

This forced a water shutdown at certain addresses along Red Bluff between Harris and Southmore, the city said.

Overnight, a portion of the intersection was taped off, along with a pile of dirt and a backhoe. No one was working at the time.

By Thursday at about 7:30 a.m., repairs had been completed and water had been turned back on.
