Massachusetts man injured when wires wrap around him 'like a cobra' and drag him down street

A Massachusetts man was injured when overhead wires pulled down by a passing truck wrapped around him and dragged him down the sidewalk.

Police say a truck hauling a modular home pulled down wires in Framingham at about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday. The man became tangled in the wires and was dragged to the next door neighbor's house.

Kathy Walsh tells WCVB-TV that her husband, Scott Canavan, was taken to the hospital with cuts, bruises and a sore back. She described the wires wrapping around him "like a cobra."

Walsh says the wires were telephone and cable wires and not high-voltage power lines.

Police tell The MetroWest Daily News the accident remains under investigation and the driver of the truck has not been cited.
