Ten feet of brick crumbled from a building on West Main Street in Willimantic late Monday evening when a box truck snagged on overhead wires, ripping down the building’s facade. Willimantic police said the owner of Couto Auto Sales was parking a tractor-trailer in the company lot at 1535 Main Street around 6:50 p.m. when the truck became entangled in low-hanging power lines."As the truck pushed forward, some of the facade broke away and that’s when we had the collision," explained Willimantic police spokesman Cpl. Stanley Parizo.
