Rig gets caught in power lines


TOWN OF TRENTON — A portion of Route 12 was closed Friday afternoon when a tractor trailer got caught in some electrical wires.

Sheriff's deputies said Edward A. Liner, 60, of Texas, was attempting to pull out of a private parking lot in a 2019 Kenworth tractor trailer when his big rig got attached to the power lines. Deputies said this caused the utility pole to break and the power lines were cut off.

All four lanes of Route 12 were closed down while rescue crews freed the rig and National Grid restored power. Deputies said no one was injured and no tickets were issued.
