WILLIMANTIC, Conn.(WTNH) — Part of a building was pulled down in Willimantic on Monday after a tractor trailer got tangled in telephone wires.

It happened at Coutu Auto Sales on West Main Street around 7:50 p.m. Police say the business owner was trying to move the tractor trailer and somehow got tangled in telephone wires. The whole thing ended up tearing down part of the building’s brick front. No one was hurt, but power to the business was shut down while crews cleaned up the whole mess.

No charges have been filed against the business owner.
