Hoboken Police & Fire Blotter: 7/11/2011

Hoboken crime and fire action: July 11, 2011

Various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls for July 11, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.

  • 9:30pm: 3 car accident
    Reports of a 3-car accident at 13th & Hudson Streets. How the hell does this happen? Maybe because Ian Sacs REFUSES to put back the speed bumps? I bet that’s why!
  • 2:30pm: Truck Slams “Welcome to Hoboken” Bridge
    As Hoboken411 Tweeted earlier today – a large tractor trailer that was too tall to drive under the “Welcome to Hoboken” bridge downtown – got stuck when it scraped the bottom of the structure. A big scene down there, causing massive traffic backups.
  • 10:45am: Seizure & Head Injury
    A man near 1st & Jackson began having a seizure, and fell to the ground – cutting his head open pretty badly. Some passerby called HPD and EMS. Hoboken Fire Dept. also was on scene as the first medical responder to assist the man, but they requested an “Advanced Live Support” unit. He was taken to HUMC for treatment. HFD then “decontaminated” the sidewalk afterward.

More updates to come…

I’m sure the truck thought he was home free after he didn’t get stuck trying to turn on 4th and Park.

All over head bridges have a height sign…I think that one is 13+ He had to be 13/6..the one on henderson st is 12/6..Crackers can’t read..the hollland tunnel says 13′ but its a bit higher..The liincoln tunnel is 13-6 but its a big higher..west coast semis do not pay attention…the tunnels a bell goes off..then one has to take the gw bridge
Driver automatic fired for that one.[quote comment=”208609″]I’m sure the truck thought he was home free after he didn’t get stuck trying to turn on 4th and Park.[/quote]

as the old “littel girl sees truck stuck in a tunnel and is the only one who successfully solves the problem” — let the air out of its tires!
