Elementary school evacuated after truck crashes into power lines
A school near the Lake of the Ozarks was briefly evacuated Monday after a truck crashed into power lines near the school.
The Sunrise Beach Police Department says a semi-truck struck a power line near Highway 5 and Lake Road 533.
The crash caused a power line to fall on the road and atop a parked car at Hurricane Deck Elementary School.
Officials say the school was briefly evacuated due to the smell of smoke inside the building. There were no injures reported.
Co-Mo Electric Cooperative crews were able to fix the line and the road has reopened to traffic.
