    It was a missed turn that led to some cable television and phone lines being torn down in Hoquiam by a semitruck Thursday morning, police said.

    After the driver missed his turn onto Emerson Avenue, he later made a left turn, looping into a residential neighborhood, police said. He should have made a right turn onto the posted truck route to get turned around.
