Truck collides with utility pole


Updated Dec. 18, 11:40 a.m.

Utility pole crash snarls traffic on Main Ave.

A wreck on NC 90 East (Main Ave.) in which a delivery truck struck a utility pole caused somewhat of a traffic headache for motorists.

It was observed that the vehicle involved was a Nissan Titan pickup pulling a trailer. The pickup had apparently been traveling east on NC 90 when it traveled off the roadway and struck the base of a utility pole on the curb. The vehicle bore a door placard for A&J Rental in North Wilkesboro.

Crews with Duke Energy are responding to the area to replace the utility pole and traffic was shut down in both directions at the scene.

Officers with Taylorsville Police Dept. are investigating the crash. Alexander Rescue Squad and N.C. State Highway Patrol also responded to assist.

Other details will be posted as they become available.
