After a thorough investigation, the Avon Police Department ticketed the truck driver for four traffic violations, including speeding, crossing hazardous markings, and failure to use a designated lane. No one was injured, and since the accident was clearly a case of driver error, the mayor of Avon is not concerned that the circle is unsafe.
“Every day, 12,840 cars pass through that circle,” said Mayor Tom Freeman. “I’m not taking one incident and calling the circle unsafe.”
Many other intersections in Avon are known to be much more dangerous. “The Pole Bridge and East Main intersection just East of Tom Wahl’s is a personal priority,” said Mayor Freeman.
