12.3.2017:  Crash Cuts Tree Lighting Short

Santa made his visit to Borough Hall tonight for the annual Tree Lighting and Christmas Carol Sing -A- Long, arriving on one of our fire trucks. The tree was lit and then power went out to the area. Emergency personnel, including the fire department, responded from the tree lighting to a single vehicle crash involving a car versus utility pole on Double Trouble Road near Birch Street with the report of a possible fire. The utility pole was found to have been snapped and fell into trees causing power outages to the town. The driver was treated for minor injuries by the Beachwood First Aid Squad. Jersey Central Power and Light crews responded to repair the pole and restore power. Beachwood Police investigated the crash.
