A tree service vehicle caught wires on Route 50 in the Town of Ballston Wednesday and brought down a utility pole Wednesday afternoon.

 A Wade’s Tree Service vehicle failed to lower its boom arm when exiting a work site on Route 50 near the intersections of McCrea Hill Road and Meadowbrook in the Town of Ballston.

The arm became entangled in the overhead wires and brought down a nearby utility pole.

The traffic signal at the intersection of Outlet Road and Route 50 was out of service due to the accident.

A spokesperson for National Grid said no customers were impacted by the accident and crews were working at the scene. The repairs were expected to be completed by 7 p.m. Wednesday evening.

Saratoga County Sheriff’s deputies were on site of the accident Wednesday afternoon.
