A coal truck clipped power lines a little after 6 a.m. on 60 Manfred Holland Way in the Dunbar and Institute area, bringing two lines down and causing a third to lean according to the Institute Volunteer Fire Dept.

The truck did not stop after clipping the poles leaving other drivers stuck. Dispatchers say the road will be closed most of the day.

The police believe the driver may not know that he hit the poles.
