KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A low-hanging line may be to blame for trapping the driver of a semi early Friday morning.
Police said an electric pole collapsed on top of the truck near the UMKC School of Dentistry, at 25th and Holmes, just after 4 a.m.
The driver was trapped for more than an hour while KCP&L crews turned off power and cleared the lines. He was not injured.
The live wires sparked a small fire in a nearby dumpster, which spread to an exterior wall of the dental school. Crews quickly extinguished it. Two people were inside the building at the time, and were not injured.
