Philadelphia fire officials and PECO are investigating after a construction accident on Friday morning.

It happened around 11:00 a.m. in the area of Red Lion and Bustleton avenues in the Northeast.

Investigators on the scene say it appears a dump truck hit some overhead wires.

The view from Chopper 6 HD showed the payload of the dump truck elevated and it appeared to be near some wires. The front tires of the truck appeared to have melted.

The driver of the dump truck managed to escape without injury.

PECO tells Action News that power is off in that isolated area, but it is not impacting any customers.
