Officials say the wires were arcing and the driver stayed in the truck.
First responders, along with B.C. Hydro crew members, helped to safely remove the driver.
Second Street between Beacon Ave. and Bevan Ave. was closed for about an hour as emergency crews handled the incident, but it has since reopened.
