S.R. 170 closed in Springfield Twp. after truck hits electrical wires

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD TWP., Mahoning Co., Ohio -

Drivers are being asked to avoid the area near State Route 170 in Springfield Township. 

Officials have opened one lane of 170, also known as Youngstown-Pittsburgh Road, between East Pine Lake Road and South Range Road.  

Police said East Pine Lake Road is still closed as well.

Ohio Edison crews are on the scene waiting for AT&T workers to come get their lines off of the road.

According to Ohio Edison's outage map, about 55 people are without power in Springfield Township and should be restored by 11 p.m. 

Police said a utility truck with a bucket was driving down the road and hit electrical wires. 

The driver was reportedly trapped inside the truck because the wires were sparking, but no gasoline leaked from the truck, according to police.

No one was injured.
