Woodville Road east of Wheeling is closed due to downed utility poles

OREGON, OH (WTOL) - Northwood Police say Woodville Road is closed east of Wheeling Road after power lines and utility poles have been yanked down.

A semi-trailer carrying some sort of construction equipment drove by, and part of the construction equipment was left up and pulled down numerous power lines and utility poles.

A witness on scene said the driver thought he blew a tire when the power lines were hit.

The road is expected to be closed for a while. Motorists can detour from Wheeling to Curtice to I-280.
