Radio station employee hurt in electrical mishap

An 18 year-old radio station employee preparing for a live broadcast from a automobile dealership is recovering after the mast antenna of his truck hit a power line Saturday morning.

About 9:45 a.m. the employee suffered an electrical shock when he touched the truck, whose antenna mast was touching a power line.

The township fire department lieutenant said, "When our first responders got there, the pole was touching the wire, how it got that way, I have no idea."

The employee was hospitalized and is in fair condition.
