Oakwood Drive in Southold was closed late Monday afternoon after a Go Green Sanitation truck struck a low-hanging wire while collecting garbage and pulled a utility pole down into the center of the street, Southold Police said.

Officers on the scene said they were awaiting a response from the Long Island Power Authority. Although live wires ran across the pavement, power was still on in nearby houses.

No injuries were reported.
