Editor’s note: Pittsburg County is normally outside our coverage area, but this story is unusual enough to warrant coverage.

A driver who stood on the roof of his semi and grabbed a power line for an unknown reason has shut down US 270 in both directions at Arpelar in Pittsburg County.

The driver is still on the roof of his semi, waiting for the line to be shut off, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

A helicopter is on standby and fire and EMS are en route to the location.
