FAIRFIELD — Traffic along East Travis Boulevard was diverted Monday afternoon between Coolidge and Eisenhower streets after a big-rig truck driver struck telephone lines near San Bruno Street.
No one was injured. The commercial truck driver was able to drive off at about 5:40 p.m after the incident that was reported at 4:04 p.m., said Capt. Mike Guerra of the Fairfield Fire Department.
Hot weather leads to the lines hanging a little lower, Guerra said.
William Graham, 54, who lives on San Jose Street, said he’s noticed the telephone line sagging lower and lower.
