MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, New Jersey – A utility worker was cleaning up some fallen wires in Manchester Township, New Jersey, when the wires erupted into a fireball.
The incident was captured on dashcam video obtained by ABC 7.
The worker and an officer who was nearby thought the lines were de-energized.
The officer’s dashcam video showed wires exploding and the lineman running for safety.
