Midtown crash shakes loose traffic light
A pickup and an SUV collided at the intersection of 19th and P streets early Thursday, causing damage to the vehicles and the overhead traffic light.
The overhead traffic light on southbound 19th Street was apparently knocked loose, causing it to crash onto the pavement below when one of the vehicles hit the traffic light pole, according to a tow truck driver who was hauling away the SUV. The pole remained upright and the traffic light attached to the vertical portion of the pole continued to operate normally.
No details were immediately available about how the crash occurred or extent of injuries.
