18-wheeler strikes power pole on Sherwood Way


UPDATE: A missed turn by a truck driver caused traffic backups on Sherwood Way Tuesday night.

Police say a delivery driver from Dallas was turning his 18-wheeler food services truck into the Weinerschnitzel on Sherwood Way.  

He struck a telephone pole which snapped in half, but the utility lines remained in tact.  

They waited for an AEP crew to secure the area before removing the big truck.

The crash caused traffic backups on Sherwood Way and officers cited the driver for making an unsafe turn, no one was hurt.

This afternoon, an 18-wheeler turned into a driveway, striking a power pole near the Starbucks on Sherwood Way.

Currently AEP is not reporting any power outages related to the incident. It is unclear if any planned repairs are going to cause outages.
