Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office tells that there were no injuries in this incident and the trimming service was taking care of uprighting that vehicle.

The incident happened on Russel Street just outside the city of New Iberia. Firefighters were also on the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office tells that there are no current reports of damage from the incident but residents say there is damage to the roof and gutters of a home that occurred when the truck pushed down on several powerlines.

They say the incident was an accident and may have been caused because of the wet ground where the truck was parked. The truck has been successfully removed from the area.
