Emergency crews had to block Mt. Pleasant Road for several hours since the accident left live power lines strewn about the scene.

Power and phone service was interrupted in the immediate area, and power was also knocked out to the transmitter for our sister station SuperOldies 105.5 WQRK until around 9:30 last night.
