Tree falls in Whitehouse, knocking down telephone poles and lines

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: A section of Willingham Road in Whitehouse is shut down this morning as crews put up new telephone lines and poles. A couple of trees loosened by Friday's rain fell this morning on some telephone lines. This caused the lines to sag across Willingham Road. A bus driving down the road ran into the lines, pulling down the telephone poles. 

The driver was the only one on board the bus at the time. No injuries were reported. 


SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Whitehouse Fire and Police Department are on the scene where a tree fell, knocking down powerlines. It happened around 7 this morning on Willingham Street, near the city limits. 


Smith County dispatchers tell us a school bus was on the road at the time it happened. So far there have been no reports of any injuries.
