A man on a Tulsa County work crew had a close brush with electrocution, when he drove a brush hog over a downed power line.

It happened Wednesday morning on 106th Street North near Sperry. The employee, Cecil Logsdon, says he's okay, though he appeared to be shaken up a bit. “Those wheels are grounded on that trailer is what saved me. That ain't a pleasant thing, to be setting there and having fire flying around you."

Utility crews repaired the power line. No one else was hurt.
