APEX, N.C. (WNCN) – A dump truck had its bed raised as it moved down U.S. 64 Monday morning when the bed caught power lines, pulling a utility pole and power lines into the roadway, officials said.
All lanes of traffic reopened just after 5 p.m. near Jenks Road after Duke Energy crews eventually removed the power lines.
Traffic was moving very slowly after the road reopened.
No one was injured in the incident but charges are pending.
Duke officials said that power should be back on to all customers by 6:30 p.m.
