Plow driver damages 30 mailboxes along Pine Street
While trying to clear snow away from the sides of Pine Street, a Hastings plow driver damaged 30 mailboxes early last week.
It was just after 5 a.m. Feb. 22, said Public Works Superintendent John Zgoda. The darkness was one factor in the accident; the other was the buildup of ice along the curb, which allowed the plow to ride up onto the curb. The driver did not immediately realize he was hitting the mailboxes, Zgoda said, but reported it as soon as he did.
