Power Lines Cause Traffic Tie Up

A truck carrying very tall cargo temporarily holding up traffic at Simm's corner.

City police tell us the truck could not pass underneath a set of power lines without striking them. 

A call has been put into the power utility so they can lift the lines and let the truck through.

The truck has been moved to the side of the road until the lines can be lifted.

No word on how long the procedure will take.
