SOUTH JORDAN, Utah — A dump truck tangled power lines and pulled down utility poles in South Jordan, leaving more than 3,000 people without electricity.
South Jordan police Lt. Matt Pennington says the truck apparently did not lower its dump bed before driving on Wednesday evening, causing the bed to catch the power lines and pull down three poles. Pennington says the two of the poles landed on houses and one of the homes caught fire.
No injuries were reported.
Rocky Mountain Power spokesman Paul Murphy says 3,105 customers lost power, but electricity was restored to all but 140 of them within about 4 hours. The company says those customers are likely to be without power until after noon Thursday.
South Jordan is a city about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City.
