PORT ANGELES — Utility workers look up at a power pole after lines were snagged by an excavator on Mount Angeles Road at Hurricane Ridge Road in Port Angeles at about 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Crews with Port Angeles City Light and Clallam County Public Utility District were working late that afternoon to untangle an electrical line that had wrapped around a part of the truck so that the driver couldn’t get out of it, said Chief Brian Smith of the Port Angeles Police Department (PAPD).
A power pole and power lines were damaged, but no one was hurt and the truck was not damaged, Smith said.
No outages were reported.
PAPD officers and Olympic National Park crews provided traffic control while the road was blocked by the work.
