FOREST CO., Pa. (EYT) – Police are investigating an incident that took out a utility pole in Green Township late Monday morning.

According to police, around 11:26 a.m. on Monday, May 7, a crash occurred in the parking lot of Seldom Inn, located on State Route 36 in Green Township, Forest County.

Marienville-based State Police responded to the scene, and upon investigation, discovered that a red tractor-trailer and a white box trailer combination had pulled off State Route 36 into the Seldom Inn parking lot for unknown reasons.

A witness inside the business stated that as the truck exited the parking lot, heading north on State Route 36, a phone line got caught on the vehicle. Tension from the line caused a nearby electric pole to snap at the base and fall.

No injuries were reported.
