Concrete Truck Creates Power Line Chaos In Mt. Olive (PHOTOS)

Shortly before lunch Tuesday, Mount Olive firefighters and EMS personal were dispatched to the scene of an accident on Breazeale Avenue in front of the Piggly Wiggly. A concrete truck was apparently head south on Breazeale Ave when it blew a tire causing the driver to lose control of the truck. The vehicle veered across the street, jumped the curve and slammed head-on into a telephone pole taking down the power lines. The driver was taken to the hospital by EMS to be checked out for non-life threating injuries. A section of the road was closed by the downed power lines and telephone line. Firefighters and Mount Olive Police detoured all traffic around the scene while waiting for officials from AT&T and Duke Energy to clear their lines from the roadway. The road was closed for about an hour and a half.
