Truck Vs Pole: No WinnersOct 22nd, 2013 | By Admin | Category: Front Page
At approximately 9:50 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, the Madison 911 Center received a report of a vehicle crash near the intersection of S. Range Street and the railroad tracks in Madison. Responding units found a pick-up truck that had hit and broken a power pole and wires were on and around the vehicle. Fire department personnel, EMS and police could not approach the truck until power company officials deemed it safe. A Duke Energy worker arrived and made sure the lines were not live and escorted the driver to safety. The driver had wisely stayed in the vehicle during the 30-minute wait. Madison Fire/Rescue, Madison Police Department and Madison County Emergency Medical Services assisted at the scene. The driver was taken for a medical review.
