WAUKESHA COUNTY, WI — A mishap led to a dump truck striking and catching on power lines Thursday morning in Pewaukee, prompting a multi-agency response, according to FOX 6 Milwaukee.

The incident took place on Duplainville Road near the intersection with Marjean Lane.

Preliminary details indicate the driver of a dump truck had just completed a delivery when the box of the truck, which had remained in an upright position, made contact with the wires as it entered the roadway.

The Pewaukee Police Department and Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene, where a section of Duplainville Road was shut down in both directions for three hours during the response.

Crews with We Energies were called to the scene to assist with the power lines.

Authorities have not indicated any injuries in the event, and no charges have been reported.
