Dump truck takes out power poles


We have all had those rough days at work. However, a dump truck driver in Henrietta New York recently took it to another level.  

That is because as he was leaving the Rush-Henrietta High School parking lot, he forgot to lower the dump bed and in doing so, ended up taking out a dozen power poles. Because the power lines were live, the dump truck driver and five other vehicles  had to be rescued. No one was injured, However, 1,200 homes ended up without power.

The driver faces charges of an over-height vehicle, a leak in the break line and not having a working warning light in the cab.
