Vehicle Strikes High Voltage Electric Box

CFD was dispatched to 291 Stonegate Circle South for a report of smoke as a result of a vehicle into a high voltage electric box. On arrival, no smoke was evident, but the electric box had shifted from its normal resting position. The striking vehicle was already moved a short distance down the street. Engine 1-2 crew stood by with a fire extinguisher while Electric Department personnel disconnected the service and determined the need for a replacement box. CPD controlled traffic.
