    Trash Truck vs. Power Lines, Bluff Park Area, Ocean Blvd./Kennebec

    (Feb. 11, 2005) -- For reasons that have not yet been determined, a trash truck on Ocean Blvd. somehow managed to snag power lines near the LB Museum of Art, setting off a chain reaction series of events that resuled in downed wires -- and a downed light pole -- on nearby Kennebec Ave. where the light pole crashed onto a parked car.

    Downed power lines are serious stuff anytime...and especially on a rainy day.

    LBFD and other city crews responded and handled the matter without injuries. Authorities are still trying to sort out exactly what happened as we post.

    LBFD Public Information Officer Paul Rodriguez says the trash truck driver indicated he was heading westbound on Ocean Blvd. when he heard a loud "snap" while passing Kennebec, stopped his vehicle, got out and [yikes!] noticed that the truck seems to have snagged wires draped across Ocean Blvd.

    Wires were also pulled down on Kennebec...along with a street light which landed on a car.

    Fortunately, no injuries. Public Works set up a detour around the area.
