A moving dump truck brought down power lines and traffic signals on a part of Great Seneca Highway in Germantown Monday, police said.
Lanes reopened around 5:30 p.m.
Around 2:30 p.m., the truck’s bed “went up” and “brought down wires,” Pete Piringer, the chief spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service, said in a tweet.
Drivers were warned to expect delays and seek alternate routes as southbound Great Seneca Highway (MD-119) was closed at Richter Farm Road.
Although the traffic signals and several power lines came crashing down, Pepco reported no power outages in the area.
No injuries were reported, and the traffic lights did not strike any other passing vehicle.
