The traffic signals at First avenue and Fortieth street East were decked Wednesday afternoon when one of the poles supporting them was broken off by a truck, but as the picture shows it kept on flashing an amber light to warn drivers to be cautious. The truck was being driven west on First avenue by Leo R. James, 54, of 808 Blairs Ferry road NE. Police said his truck and a car driven by Kevin M. Karlan, 18, of 433 Nilsen road NE, collided. Karlan's car, in turn, was pushed back into a car driven by Edward F. Stuessel, 27, of 4734 E avenue NE. The truck then veered into the utility pole. Police said Karlan had been eastbound on First avenue and was turning left onto Fortieth street while a green arrow was showing on the signal. James was charged with disobeying a red traffic signal. The three drivers were uninjured.
