Cane truck allegedly dislodges powerlines in Maryborough

A CANE truck has allegedly dislodged powerlines and kept driving - causing traffic disruptions on Lennox St, Maryborough on Friday night.

Maryborough fire crews and police closed the road for 20 minutes at 5.40pm while Ergon Energy crews made repairs.

Station officer Warren McKean said witnesses reported the truck had dislodged the wiring of the overhead powerlines and didn't stop.

"The lines were hanging low over Lennox St, and were a potential obstruction for other tall vehicles so we closed the road," Mr McKean said.

The road was reopened to traffic by 6.15pm.

Police investigations were continuing.
