Keven Mason from Rocky Mountain Power surveys the damage.

On Thursday at approximately 5:20 p.m. a truck with a trailer knocked down a power pole in the Harts parking lot in Huntington. The truck's trailer hit a guide wire which pulled down the power line across Main Street and snapped off the power pole. The downed line also burned the back of a Jeep sitting in the parking lot. The downed line snapped causing fire and shooting flames from the two ends of the line. Emergency crews responded and immediately shut down the traffic for one block, diverting the traffic around the block and out again by Wards. The driver was unaware he had struck the wire as the truck kept moving.

Harts reported their lights flickered and went off and them came back on again. No one was hurt in the incident. Work continued by Rocky Mountain Power over the weekend to fix the damaged lines and install a new pole.
