At 6:57 p.m., Deputies responded to the Martintown Church parking lot, in the W8900 block of Lena Street, Town of Cadiz, for a report of a semi that had tried to operate out of the church parking lot and the trailer to the semi caught the cable wire, causing two utility poles to go down. It was reported one of the broken utility poles had struck a residence on Lena Street. Robert A.
