Stopped Train Stops Traffic

 

 

The line of traffic because of a train that was stopped for more than two hours from 1-3 pm– blocking the Defiance Street and Franklin Street crossings– stretched back as far as Lutz Road, Friday, May 10. The southbound truck driver on the left decided not to continue to wait. He pulled into the northbound left-turn lane to drive around the stopped traffic to turn right onto Stryker Street around 3:05 pm, as school was letting out and children were approaching the downtown sidewalk crossings. Another truck decided to follow him, crossing into the northbound lanes to turn onto Stryker Street.– photo by Mary Huber
