A broken power pole caused street closures in Warner Robins Thursday.
The incident happened on Green Street near Georgia 247.
The power pole broke at about 3:45 p.m., and police had the street blocked in both directions for much of the day. Flint Energies repair trucks were on the scene, but as of 8 p.m., officials were still working to clear the area, said Sgt. Robert Smock of the Houston County Sheriffs Office.
The pole came down when a Fed Ex truck hit a line attached to it. The pole is owned by Flint, but the attached line was not a power line and no one lost power. Flint Energies spokesman Jimmy Autry said the line was an AT&T phone line no longer in use that had apparently sagged low enough for the truck to hit it. The impact completely snapped a pole on one side of the street and caused a pole on the other to lean across the road.
