Mega mess

Purcell Police, fire units, Purcell Electric Department and the ECI responded to a freak accident behind Star Travel Plaza at 2605 SH 74 south just after 6:30 p.m. last Thursday. Firefighters said a 2002 Tan Peterbilt semi hauling an oversized load with a height of 15’2” tangled up in power lines that served the travel plaza. The incident caused a power pole with two transformers full of oil to fall to the ground. Electric crews requested ECI be contacted to clean up the spilled oil. There were no reported injuries. Crews left the scene around 9:30 p.m.
