A Harvey Tree Service bucket truck wound up sideways Tuesday afternoon when it snagged a power line. The truck was driving north on Outlet Bay Road near Deer Grove Road in the Township of Barnes with its boom extended by mistake. The boom struck a powerline, causing the vehicle to overturn on a bridge shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Both the driver and a passenger in the vehicle sustained minor injuries but declined any ambulance transport.
The incident remains under investigation, but alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been a factor, according to a report from the Bayfield County Sheriff's Office.
