It took several minutes to free a truck driver who was trapped when utility lines draped across his rig after an accident.

The driver of a tractor trailer clipped some wires on a Montgomery County street late Wednesday night, and in the process took down a utility pole.

It happened around 10:40 p.m., near the Ardmore Post Office on the unit block of Ardmore Avenue in Ardmore.

Some of the downed wires also ended up draped across about 20 postal trucks.

The driver of the rig was trapped inside his cab for a short period of time while utility workers cut off power to the wires.

He was not injured.
