Car snaps pole

On Murray Place. A car turning left from a private drive onto Murray Place last week, jumped the curb and struck a service pole, snapping it 15 feet above, ground level.

The driver, Brian Wagner. 21, of Burd Road, Pennington, was taken by the Princeton First Aid Squad to Princeton Medical Center where he was treated for contusions and abrasions to both knees.

Mr. Wagner, an employee of Larry’s Sunoco service station on the corner of Murray Place and Nassau, told Sgt. Peter Hanley that a car traveling in the opposite direction was on his side of road. He tried to pull right, hit the curb and lost control. Sgt. Hanley was unable to locate any witnesses to the mishap.

The car, a 1979 sedan, was a customer’s car that had been left at the station for repair.
