What Caused Power Outage 'Out Country' This Weekend?
You may have noticed the traffic delay on Salem Street Saturday.
Several homes in the Salem Street/Boxford Street area mysteriously lost power Saturday afternoon after a trash truck knocked a tree limb onto power lines.
A trash truck slid off the road and hit a pole, knocking a power line down onto the street.
No one was injured, but the road was closed to traffic for a while and power was cut off to nearby homes while crews removed the wire.
This is the second time in a week a trash truck has slid off the roads in North Andover. The first was Thursday afternoon at the start of the storm.
