MONTGOMERY, Ohio (WXIX) - A previously closed portion of Montgomery Road has reopened.

A 1.4-mile stretch of this main eastern Hamilton County thoroughfare was closed from Remington Road to Mitchell Farm Lane due to downed power lines.

The poles came down sometime late Monday in an incident that is now under police investigation.

A driver noticed the downed poles and reported it to 911 dispatchers at 11:44 p.m. Monday, according to Hamilton County.

“We believe a semi struck low-hanging power lines, but it remains under investigation at this time,” the city said in a Facebook message.
