Ill Wind Hits Lot 7

This truck took a hit when a metal pole with a rusted-out base toppled in Wednesday's wind storm. The pole in question was one that Plaintalker had observed previously. I forget who I called, but nothing happened to check out the pole, which was leaning at an angle over the city parking lot for several months.

One can see how the business end of the pole , with those metal projections, could do quite a bit of damage.
Check the damage to the hood, windshield and top of the truck.
The truck owner said the pole belonged to Verizon. Obviously litigation will ensue.

It was tragic when a High School girl was killed several years ago in westfield by a falling branch, and tragic when stuff is damaged in other places. ALL locations can not be sterile safe, so please observe where a person parks, walks in storms.

If you notified the City of this hazard, and they did nothing about it, the Citliable is definitely liable for its negligence.
