A downed pole and power lines were reported to the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday afternoon.
According to the report, deputies were dispatched to the intersection of County Highways 44 and 134, and the area was blocked until a crew from American Electric Power arrived to removed the lines.
A deputy observed that a large vehicle possibly pulling a trailer attempted to turn and struck the utility pole causing it to snap and bring the lines down across the roadway. There was red transfer paint on the pole.
The incident is under investigation.
