A truck driver in training struck some low hanging utility lines in Utah recently, damaging several homes.
The accident happened in St. George, Utah on Wednesday, September 5th at around 2:00 p.m.
According to KSL News, an unnamed truck driver in training was driving a Dixie Technical College semi truck north on 500 East between 400 and 500 South when the rig got caught on some low hanging utility lines, pulling down several lines and shattering three power poles, causing considerable damage to the roofs of two nearby homes and displacing the air conditioning unit of another.
“There was just a big, loud, huge boom and we’re guessing it’s because it just knocked the pole onto the air conditioning,” said resident Karly Chew.
The training truck driver’s identity was not released and it is not clear whether he was cited for the incident.
