18-wheeler strikes DART power pole, disrupts rail service

Posted: Updated:

DART rail service is expected to resume in downtown Dallas on Tuesday afternoon after an 18-wheeler struck a pole that provides power to the lines.

An 18-wheeler turning from Pacific Avenue onto Griffin Street made too sharp of a turn shortly before 6 a.m. Tuesday, according to DART officials, and struck one of the catenary poles that supplies power to DART rail lines.

DART opted to keep rail service running through the morning rush hour, but shut down service between Pearl and West End stations at 9 a.m. to make repairs.

DART operated a bus bridge between Pearl and West End stations to keep passengers moving on the rail system. All four lines were affected by the mid-morning station closures.
