When firefighters arrived Thursday at the Coleman United Methodist Church, located at 1502 E Warm Springs Ave., they found the ABF Freight semi sitting with a power line between the cab and the trailer. A Sumter County sheriff’s deputy and a crew from Lake EMS also responded to the incident.

Linemen from Duke Energy arrived a short time later and secured the utility lines. There were no injuries.
