Truck crashes into pole

TAMAQUA, Pa. -

Officials in Schuylkill County are investigating an accident that leveled a utility pole.

It happened just before 4 a.m. Wednesday in the 300 block of Owl Creek Road in Tamaqua.

A crew at the scene said the driver of a truck heading east lost control, ran off the road and hit the pole.

Emergency officials had to shut down the road to clean up the pole and wires that fell.

There were no injuries reported, but the road was closed while workers restored the wires and put the pole back up.
