The trailer lip of a food delivery truck clipped a low hanging electrical line at The Shebang on Monkey Island Thursday afternoon. The truck driver speculated that a low section of the access road had been filled recently causing his vehicle to ride higher as it drove under the lines. The force of the impact broke the nearest power pole into two pieces. No one was injured but certain parts of the “Island” were without power for a time while crews from REC enacted repairs. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the Grove Integris EMS, the Monkey Island Fired Department, and the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office all responded to the scene.
