FORT MYERS, Fla.- A semi-truck hit a power line on Ford St., knocking out power for hundreds of customers Friday morning. At one point, more than 800 customers were still without power.
No one was injured in the accident.
According to our partners at the News-Press, a local plumbing service owner helped rescue the driver from his burning truck, after it hit the power line and burst into flames.
Ford St. was closed between Canal St. and Hanson St.
FMPD says the power line was in the way and an investigation is still under way to determine why it was.
