GAINES – A dump truck driver dumped a load at a Ridge Road property and was headed back on the road when the truck caught overhead wires at about 3:30 p.m.
The driver forgot to bring down the box of the truck after delivering the load. A telephone pole snapped, just east of Brown Road.
National Grid crews were on scene and Albion firefighters were directing traffic, which was limited to one-way.
A state trooper and Orleans County deputies were also on scene. The driver wasn’t injured.
