Power lost as truck tears down hydro wires
Power went out for at least 500 homes in the area of Peardonville Road and Broadway late Monday night, after a tow truck carrying another rig hit power lines.
At about 11 p.m. the over-height combination of a tow truck hauling a three-ton truck with a bucket-boom tore out a set of hydro wires. The incident also almost brought down a main pole. Crews worked throughout the night and into the morning.
The power came back on around 8 a.m., said a resident in the area.
Police and hydro authorities were not available for comment.
