A one-vehicle crashed happens in front of 2103 Upper Stump Road. A vehicle struck a utility pole, snapped it and wires are down across Upper Stump Road; which is impassable. PECO is already on scene and a crew is on the way to make repairs; which will probably last through the night. Avoid the area if possible.
People are encouraged to shred , rather than simply throw away, any items that include their personal information. This includes pre-approved credit card offers that come in the mail. Thieves can pick through trash, obtain documents with personal information, and wreck havoc on someone's credit.
Telephone scammers claiming to be from the Social Security Administration are targeting telephone numbers in this area. They obviously use an automated program to dial the numbers because they called the police department 2 separate times today. Unfortunately an hour later a resident came to the police station to report the same scam. She was on the phone with the scammer for over 30 minutes but eventually realized it was a scam and did not lose any money.
As previously posted, W. Butler Ave (Business Route 202 / SR4204) is now closed for approximately 2 months while repairs are made to the bridge. The closer is 24/7 while repairs are being completed. Detour signs are posted and the detour route is Route 152 (S. Limekiln Like) to the 202 Parkway to County Line Road (and in reverse).
Ferry Road is closed between Chapman Road and Limekiln Road due to a large tree that is hanging low over the road and touching power lines. We are currently waiting on PECO to turn the power off so PennDOT can have the tree removed.
