Truck hits utility pole on I-20 frontage road at State Highway 351, causes traffic delays

ABILENE, Texas - A truck hit a utility pole and caused a downed power line across the westbound I-20 frontage road at SH 351 earlier this morning in the Texas Department of Transportation's construction project area.

"It caused some major traffic delays while workers moved the power line out of the way," TxDOT spokeswoman Darah Waldrip said. "Although traffic is moving again, the utility company will need to close the frontage road to traffic again to reinstall the power line."

Waldrip said the power line should be back up and traffic should be back to normal by mid to late morning.
