Traffic light pole falls at Union and Passaic streets
« on: July 17, 2021, 01:40:06 PM »
1,2. A little after 2:30 yesterday afternoon, I get on the Nordic Track in my back room because it's next to a window A/C, happen to look out the window and I see this.

3-6. So they strap it to a small crane on the back of a truck and get it upright ............in a crosswalk?

7. It looks like it's standing on something the size of a pencil.

8. Three men appear to pick it up.

9-11. One man seems to be carrying it to its corner (with a little help from the crane).

12. Man carries new lights as officer watches.

13-15. Men put new lights together. (what is that figure in the top middle of 14 and 15? It looks like a hand.)

16. Bike rider eyes where replacement light will hang from.

17,18. Man and crane bring up light fixture to hang.

19. Lights are up, but not on.

20. Back to normal sometime around 5:30pm.

I didn't know what originally caused this all to happen, so I called the HPD and was told that there was a "motor vehicle accident at around 1pm". The light pole didn't appear to be damaged, so maybe it was one of those taps that was a little too strong.
