Assistant Chillicothe Police Chief Rick Sampsel reports a tractor-trailer unit made contact with a utility pole and broke it into two Monday morning.

The accident happened at the corner of Violet and Henry when the driver attempted to make a right turn. No injuries were reported.

A representative for the Chillicothe Police Records Department identified the driver of the tractor-trailer as Michael Brown of Topeka, Kansas. The representative says Chillicothe Municipal Utilities was notified of the broken pole and the need to replace it.

No residents lost power as a result of the tractor-trailer hitting the utility pole.
