It didn’t matter to one driver whether the light was red or green once they knocked the whole light standard over in Pelham last night (August 2).
Called in for the collision, Niagara Police discovered that a tractor-trailer was on Pelham Street and turned east onto Regional Road 20 just past 5 pm. While making the turn, they completely took out the signal light post on the southeast corner of the intersection.
According to the witnesses, the driver stopped briefly and then took off.
The only description the police have it that it was a “red truck pulling a float-trailer with road-maintenance equipment on it.”
There were no injuries. The Region of Niagara moved quickly, installing a temporary light post and police say “the traffic control lights are functioning as they should.”
Thy are still attempting to identify the truck and driver. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the investigating officer at 905-688-4111, option 3, extension 1009367.
