The bed of a dump truck clipped a power line on Djeddah Drive on Friday afternoon, pulling down two electric poles and causing widespread power outages in Lawrenceburg.
Lawrenceburg Police Officer David Patterson said the driver of the dump truck thought the bed was down and locked, but an issue with the hydraulics of the truck caused the bed to rise and catch the power lines.
One electric pole was pulled down in the road at 119 Djeddah Drive, and the next pole in line fell in a neighbor's backyard.
At least one of the poles appeared to be dry rotted.
