Power lines trap trucker in Mooresville

A dump truck driver was trapped inside his vehicle Monday morning when power lines fell on top of it, authorities said.

The incident was reported shortly before 10 a.m. in the 300 block of Plaza Drive West (N.C. 150), a short distance east of Interstate 77. A spokesman for Mooresville Fire & Rescue said 10 crew members arrived within a minute and worked with Duke Energy crews to free the driver.

The road was shut down for a time during the rescue.

No injuries were reported. Officials did not say what caused the power lines to fall on the dump truck.
