Semi-truck snaps low-hanging cable in Clarkson

Monday morning at 11:20, Clarkson Fire and Police Departments, along with Kentucky Utilities, responded to a broken utility pole on Hwy 62 at Roadway Construction Products in Clarkson.

A semi-truck traveling on Hwy 62 snapped a low-hanging cable running over the highway. The pole holding the Windstream cable was bent just over halfway up the pole, with the cable dropping onto the roadway.

Police and fire officials closed Hwy 62 to both directions of traffic for approximately an hour-and-a-half while waiting for KU officials to determine if the fallen cable was electrical.

There were no injuries reported.
