Semi hits power lines

Lawton_A shortcut through a Lawton parking lot left a semi tangled in live power lines. It happened around 6 Tuesday night in a parking lot between First and Second Streets and "A" and "B" Avenues.

Public Service Company Of Oklahoma tells 7News when the semi-driver cut through the lot, power lines hooked on the top of his trailer. That caused 2 power poles to break and lines ended up on the truck, trapping the driver.

Witnesses say a fireball then traveled down the lines. The incident did not actually knock out power to any customers, but to get the semi free, PSO had to cut power to about 2 dozen, including the YMCA and the Lawton Police Station. Once the poles were fixed, power was fully restored.
