UPPER FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP, NJ (MONMOUTH)–A tow truck traveling north in the area of the 200 Block of County Road Route 539 lost control and hit a utility pole before coming to a rest in the front yard of a home in the area. The utility pole was cut off from the bottom and caused low hanging wires over Route 539. The Hope Fire Company of Allentown and Allentown EMS responded to the scene. It was reported the driver of the truck was out of the vehicle and uninjured. Hope Fire Company members directed traffic in the area until Monmouth County Road Department responded with barricades to shut the roadway. JCP&L was responding but not on location at the time of this report. Expect the roadway to be closed for hours until the utility pole can be replaced.
