2 killed when dump truck hit wires

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut police say the driver of a dump truck and another man have died after being injured in South Windsor when the truck came in contact with electrical wires.

Chief Matthew Reed says on his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon that both men died. Their names have not yet been released.

Reed said both received shocks Wednesday morning and were taken to a hospital, one by ambulance and another by helicopter.

Reed said a Connecticut Light & Power crew cut the power supply so rescuers could treat the victims.
