A trash truck apparently became entangled with a guy wire supporting the WNOI Radio tower along US Route 50 in Flora Tuesday morning. The contact brought down the tower, knocking the station off the air.

Part of the tower struck the radio station building, causing a hole in the roof. No one was injured.

Flora city police say the incident occurred about 9am Tuesday.
