LOWVILLE — A utility pole was partially pulled over near the Lewis County Solid Waste and Recycling Facility gate off State Route 26 at about 3 p.m. Monday.

One of the rear doors on the garbage truck, owned by Shue Brothers, is open and appears to be hooked on the wires.

According to the National Grid website, a crew is at the site and power should be restored by 8:45 p.m.

The Lewis County Sheriff’s department is on the scene.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
