Truck takes out power pole in Lufkin wreck

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A two-vehicle accident on the corner of Conn Avenue and Calvert Street caused minor traffic issues and a broken power pole Wednesday morning.

The accident caused a power outage to the stoplight on the intersection of Timberland Drive and Chestnut Street and to the nearby Pizza Hut.

Officer Kevin Jackson said he believes speed was a factor in the wreck. He said witnesses said a Toyota truck was speeding down Conn Avenue and hit the Ford pickup.

Jackson said witnesses said the Ford did stop at the stop sign.

The Ford took out a power pole and damaged a transformer.
