Power is out around Cave Avenue in Winslow after a moving truck knocked down electrical lines along the road, Monday afternoon.

"He got under the wires and dropped off furniture and whatever, and then snagged wires on the way out," said Fire Marshal Luke Carpenter. "Nobody is hurt."

The Bainbridge Island Fire Department and police have been dispatched to the scene. Puget Sound Energy is also aware of the incident.

There is no word on how long the power will be out. The truck also knocked down telephone and cable lines serving the area. The lines cut into the truck, Carpenter said, and the utility companies are working to remove the truck first, before repairing them.
