Semi Knocks Down Wire, Cuts Power

A semi apparently struck a wire, knocking out power at the Archbold Family Care Home, 109 West Barre Rd.

A woman working at the care home said at about 4:15 pm Monday, Jan. 21, she heard a loud noise; then the power went out.

She told officers she looked outside and saw a white semi, with yellow and brown lettering on the tractor, next to a pole in the parking lot.

She said the driver got out of the cab and assessed the damage.

She assumed the driver would remain at the scene, but the semi, towing a white trailer with no lettering, drove away.

Toledo Edison and RTEC Communications were called the scene, and service was restored.

Police have marked the case closed.
