Traffic came to a halt Friday when equipment on a semi-trailer snagged utility lines. According to Oregon State Police reports, Glen Yadon, 59, told investigators he was entering Hwy.126 from a driveway in the 49600 block around 11:16 a.m. when the rear of his trailer hit the low-hanging wires. Yadon came to an immediate stop and Charter/Spectrum utility crews were called to the scene to move the pole and wires to the right shoulder. The Peterbilt truck and its load were not damaged and were driven from the scene when the lanes reopened at 12:29.
