Light post damaged at 5th and Locust

This light post at North Fifth and Locust Streets was damaged by a vehicle earlier this week, possibly due to distracted driving. According to a witness, the driver was heading west on Lancaster Avenue and failed to negotiate a turn southwest onto Locust Street before striking the post. Currently, the base of the post is broken, and the traffic light control button is dangling by its wires. The witness also said someone recently removed one of the shards of metal from the base.


  1. Hope they fix it soon does not look good also could be dangerous.

  2. I heard kids were walking toward this area just as the irresponsible driver jumped the curb.
