LAIRDSVILLE – A truck driver escaped injury when his tractor-trailer truck, carrying a bulldozer, crashed into a utility pole on Bald Eagle Road, just off of Route 118, two miles east of here, about 5:15 p.m. Thursday, May 17 according to fire officials.

Some utility lines came down, cutting off power to a number of homes in the area until PPL crews made repairs. Tires on the truck caught fire, officials said. The road re-opened shortly before 8 p.m.
