A semi crash knocked out power and closed a road for several hours near Somonauk.

Deputies in DeKalb County say 35-year-old Christopher Wilson of Leland lost control of his semi Sunday morning on Somonauk Road. He hit a mailbox and high-voltage power pole. The downed power pole caused a stretch of Somonauk Road to be closed to traffic for several hours.

Wilson wasn’t hurt or ticketed according to the initial accident report.
