Tractor-trailer gets caught on lines

A tractor-trailer got caught on some low phone lines when the driver went to turn around in the parking lot of Christ Lutheran Church on Grandview Road at about 7 p.m. Wednesday, Cornplanter Fire Chief George Kinch said. Cornplanter fire personnel said the driver missed his turn when his GPS gave him wrong directions. The tension the trailer put on the phone lines also pulled down a telephone pole. Firefighters see a lot of accidents on that stretch of Grandview Road, according to Kinch. Only one lane of Grandview was open at about 8 p.m. Wednesday, a Venango County 911 representative said. Franklin state police and Rouseville volunteer firefighters were also on the scene. (By Kara O'Neil)
