Side­walk col­lapse closes street

The Citizens' Voice - - LOCAL - — James Halpin

The 700 block of Main Street was closed Satur­day af­ter a side­walk col­lapsed, ac­cord­ing to fire­fight­ers.

Fire­fight­ers say a U-haul truck that was parked along the road caused the side­walk to col­lapse into an area that used to be a coal cel­lar for an apart­ment build­ing. No in­juries were re­ported. Bor­ough of­fi­cials were work­ing to cover the holes in the side­walk, and the area would be closed un­til the road is safe, fire­fight­ers said. It was not known when the road would re-open.
