Washington County Sheriff's officials say they responded to a 911 call in New Harmony about 2 p.m. Thursday.
The Spectrum reports three men were working on a water pump when their truck apparently hit overhead power lines. The contact sent out a shock that killed one of the men and hurt another.
The paper reports it also started a small brush fire that was quickly put out.
Authorities haven't yet released the names of the people involved.
