“When they were coming down Central Avenue, they thought they had clearance to go through town from all the power lines,” Krause said.

At first, the truck made it through, but was stymied as it approached the city’s two low-running cables streamed across Highway 22. The truck encountered the first cable at the intersection with Lincoln Road.

“They were able to push the cable line over the trailer and cross that, “Krause said.

When they drove to the cable near Cenex, the electric company could not get the cable lines over the trailer. The trailer had to back up and make a right-hand turn on Court Street, a left on Rodeo and a left on Fourth Avenue.

There were low-hanging cables on Fourth and Court, but the truck made it through having the cables pushed over the trailer.
