Inside News


Not Part Of The Load
The driver of an 18-wheel tractor-trailer talks with a EMT from Medical Arts Hospital EMS, while Assistant Fire Chief Eddie Schwartz uses a wand to check for a live wire after the truck hooked an electrical utility pole, pulling it and the wire down at the southwest corner of the parking lot for West-T-Go’s diesel island. The driver apparently was making a left turn into the parking lot off North 4th Street behind Wes-T-Go when the accident occurred about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday. Schwartz said the electrical wire draped across the loaded trailer still was live, but no injuries were reported. Oncor was called to replace the pole and repair the line.
