TULSA

Utility truck

gets stuck

A city utility truck was stuck for hours when it was caught in a 9-foot sinkhole on a city street. City spokeswoman Michelle Allen told reporters that the road collapsed Monday morning because of a defect in an underground sewer line. Truck driver James Thomas told reporters he could feel the truck moving and sinking while at a stop sign. He tried to drive away, but it was too late. The rear of the truck remained in the hole for several hours before a tow truck was able to remove it. Officials said the truck is used to clean storm sewers and was loaded with water — bringing its weight to about 60,000 pounds.

Missing police

dog sought

A dog that works for the Mayes County sheriff's office is missing, Undersheriff Albert McKee said. Max, a black Labrador retriever, was reported missing from a deputy's home in Strang about 3 p.m. Sunday, McKee said. “We don't know if he got out of his kennel or someone took him out,” he said. The 9-year-old dog has a titanium lower tooth and is wearing a silver choke chain, McKee said. Strang is about 16 miles northeast of Pryor. Anyone with information about the dog's location is urged to call the sheriff's office at (918) 825-3535.
