Motel Sign Blows Over, Hits Semi And Downs Power Line

No injuries were reported after a motel sign in Richmond blew over, hit a semi, knocking that over, and also brought down a power line.

The incident happened at about 1 p.m. at a parking lot of the Super 8 Motel off of exit 90 on I-75 in Richmond. The owner of the truck says he parks it there when he is not on the road, and the truck was empty at the time.

The sign also hit a power line, but did not cause major disruptions in power in the area.

Officials say high winds in the area likely caused the sign to blow over.
