A utility pole located at the corner of 11th and Main streets was replaced last week after it was involved in two unrelated traffic accidents.
On May 1, Clinton Cottrell, 29, struck the utility pole with his vehicle.
No injuries were reported and the vehicle was driven from the scene. Cottrell was issued a ticket for careless driving; alcohol was not a factor.
On May 2, the utility pole was struck by Paul Story, 68, of Montrose. The Delta Police Department reports that his red pickup came to rest on its side after striking the utility pole and curb. No injuries were reported and the vehicle was towed from the scene. Story was charged with careless driving; alcohol was not a factor.
Officers were reconstructing an accident at the corner of 4th and Main which injured Delta residents Bill and Kathy English. The report on the two-car accident will not be released by the Delta Police Department until the reconstruction has been completed.blog comments powered by Disqus
