18-wheeler strikes, cuts down power pole. (10/15/2014)

ATLANTA — 10/15/2014 —  Witnesses stated that a black 18-wheeler struck and chopped out the bottom of a light pole, leaving a live wire on the road and the light hanging low.  The incident occurred at ~ 6:50pm.

Some people on the scene have suggested a ban on 18-wheelers and other large trucks driving down the back roads of Atlanta, raising concerns that local intersections in Atlanta are too narrow for an 18-wheeler to safely turn in.
