VIRGINIA BEACH - Some scary moments for a truck driver in Virginia Beach.  

The trash truck was behind the Farm Fresh off 501 Laskin Road when the top of his rig hit a power line around 4:45 a.m.

Dominion Power was called to the scene because authorities weren't sure if the lines were still active. The driver had to stay inside the rig until the lines were safe.

About 45 minutes later, Dominion Power cut off the power so the truck could be moved to a safe location.

The driver was being checked by EMS personnel.
