Hoboken police and fire blotter: 1/19/2011
Hoboken crime and fire action: January 19, 2011
Some afternoon incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Wednesday, January 19, 2011. This post may updated and “bumped” periodically.
- 11:58pm: Transformer Explosions Galore!
Several power transformers just exploded in various parts of town… near 11th and Madison – and even downtown on Hudson Street. Imagine what Hoboken will be like when (IF) they build even more buildings? Yikes!
- 5:55pm: Corner Crash
Near the intersection of 9th and Madison – a tractor trailer struck a parked car. The hits keep coming in Hoboken.
- 4:00pm: Another False Alarm
At 915 Madison Street, construction workers accidentally set off a fire alarm – and required that an entire squadron of trucks to be dispatched. There has to be a better way, no? Does Hoboken even need these central alarms?
- 3:45pm: Wire down – no big deal
Residents were alarmed by a “down wire” on 5th Street between Garden & Park. HPD investigates, turned out only to be a phone wire. Who uses landline phones anymore?
- 3:30pm: Parking Utility Vehicle Accident
Hoboken Parking Utility car with license plate MG75111 crashed into another NJ vehicle with license plate number ZFR-38P. Guess Transportation Czar Ian Sacs is (literally) driving everyone mad over there.
