by Ponce Law | July 16th, 2020

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, TN – Power was knocked out in a portion of eastern Cumberland County Wednesday due to an incident involving a tractor-trailer, according to 1057 News.

It happened as the driver, 52-year-old Joseph A. Kaskiewicz, was turning a Kenworth Conventional into the Westel Fire Hall parking lot off Highway 70.  The Tennessee Highway Patrol said the truck became caught in some power, telephone and cable lines and ended up tearing them down. Three utility poles were also knocked down, and the Westel community lost electricity.

Kaskiewicz, of Palm Bay, Florida, was able to get out of the vehicle without being injured. Traffic in the area was affected for hours while the scene was being cleared.
