Rig Pulls Down Wire, Takes Off, Police Say

State police at Fogelsville are looking for a truck driver and it isn't to say thank you.

Same likely goes for an Upper Milford Township homeowner.

Trouble began innocently enough when a tractor-trailer operator struck a low-hanging wire while driving on Kings Highway S. about 10 a.m. Nov. 1 near Lenape Park Road, police said. The snagged vehicle yanked the wire from the side of the home at 6063 Kings Highway S., damaging siding and insulation.

The truck left without reporting the accident, police said.

Police did not provide a damage estimate.

A witness told police that the vehicle was a tractor-trailer, but could not offer a full description. Anyone else who witnessed the hit-and-run accident is asked to call police at 610-395-1438.
