Two people were sent to the hospital after a crash at a Monster Truck Show in Topsham.

One of the Trucks Became Tangled With a Power Line

Officials say the Fairgrounds was hosting a Monster Truck Show Saturday afternoon and members of the Topsham Fire Department were at the scene, monitoring the event. As part of the show, the trucks were going over a series of moguls until just before 2 when one of the trucks struck an aerial utility wire as it went over a jump. The wire became caught on the truck known as 'Crustacean' and pulled it tight, taking down several utility poles before the truck could stop. At least one of those poles was near the spectator viewing section.
