SaultOnline was tipped off to a commercial delivery gone awry around 2:30 p.m. this afternoon.

Sault Police services and PUC were on the scene in the 800 block of Fourth Line where a tractor trailer had managed to pull down some lines. The incident caused an unplanned power outage for PUC customers from Fouth Line east of Great Northern Road for over an hour.

PUC could be seen setting up to remove the power lines entangled on the transport and as of 3:45 p.m. power had been restored to the area. The incident has since been cleared.

There is no word on whether there would be any charges levied at this time.
