Officials with Slemco told KATC that the 100 block of Gloria Switch Road will remain closed for a few hours. 

Mary Laurent, communications director for Slemco, said a trash truck was driving down Gloria Switch Road with the arms up and accidentally pulled down the power lines and damaged a pole. 

She said they are working jointly with LUS to repair that pole.
