SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — A shed ended up in the middle of a Snohomish County road Friday morning after a truck crashed into power poles, losing its load.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office received a call just before 6:30 a.m. about the crash on 180th Street Southeast near State Route 9, which is north of Maltby. Law enforcement believes the truck hit multiple power poles before the shed fell off the truck.

The sheriff’s office is looking for the driver, who fled the scene.

No injuries were reported.
