Hyde Square was the scene of a wreck that knocked down a light pole, flipped a truck and damaged a store front.
JP Patch will be in touch with authorities this morning with more on this wreck, which happened about 1 a.m., according to JP resident and writer Sam Nickerson. Here's the text of a report he made by posting a blog on JP Patch:
Around one in the morning on October 22nd, a small silver sedan struck two stationary cars—a white pickup truck and a vintage SUV—parked out in front of Fat Ram's Pumpkin Tattoo on Centre Street, causing the SUV to flip onto the sidewalk.
According to the owner of the white pickup truck, the driver was alert and tried to restart his car after the crash. Witnesses on the opposite side of the street said the driver, a man, was taken in an ambulance shortly after. Police officers warned the 20 or so bystanders to keep back due to the risk of live wires.
