Downed power lines close Williston schools

Posted: Updated:
WILLISTON, Vt. -

Downed power lines canceled school for students in Williston Tuesday morning.

Authorities say a garbage truck snagged a low-hanging utility line and pulled a pole to the ground. It knocked out power to a section of Williston village, including Williston Central School and Allen Brook School.

With the dangerous lines down near the central school and the prospects of several hours without electricity, school officials decided to cancel classes for the day.
