Crews are working to restore power to parts of the ASU campus after a tractor trailer rig brought down lines this afternoon on Radium Spring Road.

Around 2 o'clock a Conway Freight rig was delivering food to the student center when it clipped phone, electrical, and cable lines.

Luckily, the driver was able to get out unharmed but traffic was snarled after traffic signals went out at the intersection of Radium and Oglethorpe.

"The truck was making a right turn onto the campus of Albany State. It snagged the power lines, therefore causing the power pole to fall. No charges will be filed against the driver because this happened on private property," said APD's Phyllis Banks.

Some residence halls were without power, but it didn't effect classes.

The driver of the truck told us he had made that turn several times with no problems. It's unclear if the lanes were sagging.
