Traffic accident at 3rd Ave. NW & NW 55th St.

Update: Seattle City Light reports that power to the area has been fully restored.
Earlier: Seattle Police are at the scene of a traffic accident near 3rd Ave. NW and NW 55th St. in Lower Phinney/East Ballard. Crime scene tape is up and the intersection is blocked.

Seattle Police Department Spokeswoman Renee Witt says police are waiting for Traffic Collision Investigators, who are called to the scene when there’s major damage or serious injuries.
Here’s what neighbor Milissa says happened:

From what I could tell the truck was attached to a trailer hitch up the hill about 100 feet and when they unhitched the trailer, the truck rolled down the hill and hit the pole. When the pole fell it ripped a bunch of lines out of the house across the street.
