Mess on Main

Oversize load damages lines, poles, stops traffic

Fredericksburg Police officers on Sunday shut down Main Street for several hours after responding to an oversized truck load that damaged power lines in the 900 block of East Main.
The load caught low-hanging lines, pulling them down and damaging several utility poles. Police said no other vehicles were damaged in the accident.
The driver of the truck was not issued citations, but his company’s insurance will be responsible for damages, a police spokesman said.
The incident also is under investigation by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.
