Pole and wires down on Elm Street, Batavia

posted by Billie Owens in accidents, news, batavia.

A pole is down and wires are in the roadway at 140 Elm St., Batavia. City firefighters and Mercy medics responding.

UPDATE 1:35 p.m.: A semi truck was traveling down Elm Street when it snagged a tree branch, which snapped off and took down a pole and wires. It lodged between the cab and the trailer of the semi. No one was injured. The ambulance was sent as a precaution; the driver was a sign-off.

A weight restriction may ban them but the wires and branches were not at a legal height if he hit them.
