Truck Hits Low Hanging Wire in Potter Twp.

(Potter Twp., Pa.) Pa State Police in Beaver are reporting  that a 2016 Peterbuilt Truck was traveling south along Pa. Route 18 around 6 pm on March 21, 2021 in Raccoon Twp. when the exhaust stack on the passenger’s side struck a low hanging wire. As the truck traveled along a left-handed curve the wire pulled the exhaust stack down causing it to become removed from the truck. When troopers arrived on the scene they found that a low hanging wire was pulled away from the roadway by a support wire that was attached to a dead tree that had broken off causing the wire to hang over the roadway. Troopers notified Verizon and Duquesne Light who completed repairs before officers left the scene. No Injuries were reported.
