Driver rips down pole leaving Felipe Carrillo Puerto residents without power

Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — A double long semi trailer required assistance Thursday after pulling down a CFE electricity pole. Transit elements from the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto were sent to 65th Street after the report of a stuck semi flatbed.

The driver of the extra long unit was trying to make the corner onto a side street when part of his unit caught the pole. The CFE power pole fell to the ground, cutting power. Several blocks of the town was left without electricity due to the fallen power pole.

Federal Electricity Commission personnel (CFE) were requested at the intersection of Constitucióntes Avenue and 65th Street to make the necessary repairs to restore power.

The semi was transporting a large piece of machinery at the time of the incident.
