No injuries were reported after a van came into contact with two, low hanging power lines Thursday afternoon, in Adams County. Sheriff’s officials say 40-year old Thomas A. McCarthy, of Omaha, was traveling south on Birch Street in Corning, when the 2010 Chevy E-15 van he was driving struck the power lines, which were hanging across the road due to a fallen tree.

Minor damage was reported to the van as a result of the accident, which happened at around 3:25-p.m., Thursday.
