GASTONIA, NC (WBTV) -

The Gastonia Fire Department responded to a wreck Wednesday where a truck brought down a power pole and lines, causing a tractor trailer to hit the lines.

The accident happened at the intersection of Gaston Avenue and Franklin Boulevard just before noon.

Firefighters said an SUV hit a power pole, breaking it and bringing down power lines.

A tractor trailer coming through the intersection got caught up in some of the dangling lines and broke another pole in several places, officials told WBTV.

The intersection had to be closed as workers repaired the lines.

The two passengers in the truck were taken to the hospital by Medic. Their names and condition, or a possible reason for the wreck, have not been released.
