Delivery truck causes downed lines

On the morning of Sept 14, a delivery truck leaving from Crump’s in Linden hit the lines that run across Houston Street between South Oak Street and North Foster Street, breaking two poles. There was a car behind the truck that was damaged by the downed lines, but no injury to the driver. The lines are cable and telephone lines. A witness said that there may have been a truck pass through on Friday with a boom attached to it that may have somehow hit the lines causing them to become lower than normal.
