Driver gets trapped in truck after hitting low hanging power lines


A semi-truck driver was trapped in his truck for around 45 minutes Tuesday afternoon after becoming entangled in power lines just north of Interstate 30 on FM 2253.

The driver had to wait for an electrical lineman to come and cut the lines before he could exit the vehicle.

Texas DPS troopers and Bowie County Sheriff’s deputies were on scene directing traffic around the truck.
