Power lines can be seen on a box truck and a toppled electric pole is shown in the background in an alley off East 12th Street a little after 2:30 p.m. Monday. Xcel Energy crews and Roswell police and firefighters were at the scene. Todd Wildermuth, public information officer for the Roswell Fire Department, said the truck was turning around in a parking area in the 1200 block of Grand Avenue when it snagged a power line and caused the pole to fall. No one was injured and Wes Reeves, a spokesperson for Xcel Energy, said no customers lost power in the area as a result of the incident.
