A Princeton Electric Utility crew worked to lift downed power lines Monday afternoon on U.S. 6 just west of Princeton, where a combine had caught the lines and snapped off the top of the pole around 2:50 p.m.

As crews lifted the deactivated lines, the combine operator was able to drive safely out from under them.

Princeton Fire Department and Bureau County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.
