It was a mess of tangled power lines in Waukee Thursday.

Officials say a truck drove into an area of low hanging lines near 5th and Maple around noon.

The truck snagged on a line pulling down several others lines and the poles attached.

Authorities turned off power to much of the area while making repairs.

They’re still looking for the truck driver who fled from the incident. Police say witnesses have given them the name of the trucking company.
