Truck causes phone outage

Corsicana — About half of Richland is without telephone service Monday morning because an 18-wheeler hit a line of telephone poles, an RV, a Jaguar, and a stop sign before coming to rest in Richland, with a phone pole stuck between the cab and the trailer around 11 p.m. Sunday.

The driver came off Interstate 45 onto Navarro and bent a stop sign, then turned left onto Crest and hit a phone pole and the vehicles before hitting another phone pole, which snapped off and stopped the truck.

The driver told police that his GPS told him to go that direction, so he did, according to Richland Fire Chief Kenneth Guard.
