Saturday wreck downs power lines

(KAIR)--A stretch of U.S. Highway 59, in Atchison, remained closed late Saturday afternoon after a crash downed power lines.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News it happened around 2:00 when a westbound pickup truck struck a utility pole in the 1600 block of the highway.

According to Wilson, the pole fell to the ground, causing a second pole to fall onto a parked semi. 

Crews were continuing to make repairs late Saturday afternoon, leaving the stretch of highway closed to the Omaha Junction.

No injuries are reported.
The driver is identified as Leslie Kautz, of Huron. 

The winter weather is believed to have played a role in the wreck.
