Hoboken Police & Fire Blotter: 11/7/2012

Hoboken crime and fire action: November 7, 2012

  • 1:15am (11/8): Two trees down at 4th & Madison. Must be double-coupon night for trees. Terrific.
  • 12:15am (11/8): Tree falls on car near 4th & Monroe. Parking garages (that don’t flood) are pretty attractive these days!
  • 11:20pm: HPD reports “tree on top of car” at 89 Jackson St. Super! A sick day from work for the driver!
  • 10:10pm: Transformer exploded near 5th & Sinatra. Road closed, wires down.
  • 9:50pm: Bus stuck and tree down at 8th & Willow. The hits keep coming…
  • 9:30pm: 3rd & Jackson – more trees down.
  • 9:25pm: 7th & Willow. Guess what? Tree down. Wonder what this winter will bring us…
  • 9:11pm: Tree down on car at 911 Washington Street. What a coincidence with timing! (ps, might have gotten the street wrong – sneezed as I overheard it.)
  • 9:05pm: Several trees down on Washington between 6th & 7th and 9th on Washington. Damn trees. Taking away precious double parking spots.
  • 9:00pm: Branches down 1st & Clinton… Time to buy stock in a wood chipping company.
  • 8:50pm: Wintry scene near Helmers’ uptown. My hands are numb. Added “warm gloves” to Christmas list…
  • 8:45pm: Branch down on wires near 13th & Bloomfied. Mother nature reminding us who’s in charge.
  • 8:15pm: Man passed out at Teak. Unresponsive (possibly not breathing). EMS en route. Can’t be because of the snow, right? Hope he’s OK.

More updates to come…

I almost became a hit pedestrian myself just half an hour ago. Some brain dead driver blew a stop sign at Garden and 5th.
