On December 1, a woman smacked her vehicle right into a telephone pole on Whiting Street at around 5:30 p.m. Police believe she was drunk.
On New Years Eve, a driver flipped her vehicle after striking a pole on Free Street. She was uninjured and alcohol or drugs weren’t a factor.
Just a week later, a vehicle struck a pole on Fort Hill Street at around 11:30 p.m. and this past Wednesday morning at around 7:30 a.m., a car crashed into a street pole on the 200 block of Main Street.
