A semi struck a power pole early Monday morning in the Direct Lines Trucking lot on Illinois 33, east of Effingham.

Teutopolis firefighters say the incident was reported at 4:45am.  A truck, not a Direct Lines truck, was attempting to turn around and struck the power pole, and then left the scene.

A Norris Electric crew was called to the scene along with Teutopolis firefighters, who were on scene about 50 minutes.  There was damage to the power pole, but no one was injured.
