The staff at Greene Publishing, Inc. received a jolt when a tower, which feeds 91.7 FM, fell on top of the building right after the workday had begun at the office.
A woman, driving a rental truck, delivering cell tower equipment to a site behind Greene Publishing, Inc., ran into the guide wires and pulled the tower down. A massive boom was heard as the 170-foot steel structure fell on top of the building, part of it coming through the roof. The highest part of the structure was entangled in trees across a dirt road at the office.
No one was injured as the tower fell.
The tower had previously been used for TV3, but was now being used for the radio station. The tower falling knocked the radio station off the air, but it should be back up soon.
More details as they become available. More photos available at Greene Publishing, Inc. Facebook page.
