MANSFIELD, OH - Saturday afternoon, a truck carrying 105-foot telephone pole flipped on the US 30 Eastbound ramp. The truck was reportedly just getting on the highway and the large poles extending behind the trailer clipped an existing utility pole, causing the back end of the truck to flip. The front end of the truck did remain upright, and the driver was unhurt.

Officials say they are unsure how long the ramp will remain closed, but expect it to be "a few more hours."

The tramp was said to be carrying the poles to Maine, and each pole is valued between $19,000 - $25,000. No word yet on if the poles were damaged.
