Garbage truck crashes into power poles in Chandler

CHANDLER, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Police say a garbage truck crashed into two power poles in Chandler on Tuesday morning.

According to Chandler police, the garbage truck crashed into a power pole, which caused another power pole to come down near Arizona Avenue and Frye.

After the crash, the power lines were touching the truck, so the driver remained inside while crews worked to make sure if it was safe for him to come out.

Police say all people inside the truck were safely removed just after 10:30 a.m.

The crash caused a power outage at a couple of intersections in Chandler, but the power has since been restored.
