Salem City Dump Truck Pulls Down Utility Line; Breaks Pole

August 12, 2016

A few minutes of excitement during the City of Salem’s street oil and chipping program Thursday morning.  

The dump truck caught a utility line on Hawthorn Road causing the line to come down across the truck and breaking the power pole. However, the problem wasn’t as serious as first thought as the utility line turned out not to be an electric line.  

As a precaution, the driver had stayed in the truck until Ameren and Salem Firemen arrived and made the determination.   

The dump truck had its bed up spreading chips at the time it hit the line.
