RAW VIDEO: Lufkin police cameras capture trucks knocking down power lines

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin police have released dashcam and body camera footage from a Friday night incident in which two 18-wheelers eventually knocked down power lines and a pole.

According to Lufkin Police spokeswoman Jessica Pebsworth, a truck driver drove home and forgot they had an extender pole on top of their truck and they hit a telephone line attached to a pole which also had electric lines.

That truck brought the line down at enough of an angle for a second 18-wheeler to hit the line and drag down several lines and even an electric pole.

Pebsworth said nobody was hurt and electricity was only out for about 45 minutes.
