Tractor Trailer Truck Almost Knocks Down Telephone Poles in November Incident

The following information was supplied by the Westford Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Nov. 3, 12:51 p.m. – An elderly woman living in Forge Village called police after an unfamiliar man knocked on her door and waited outside for ten minutes.

The man turned out to be employed with a snow blowing service and was there to provide an estimate. Both the woman and the man had talked over phone, but the woman had not been expecting the man.

The officer on the call advised the man to call next time prior to arriving at the woman’s house.

Nov. 6, 9:01 a.m. – A resident on Old Lowell Road called to complain about speeding dump trucks going by their house. Radar was set up, with six dump trucks driving down the road, none of which going faster than 24 miles per hour.

A day earlier, a resident nearby on South Chelmsford Road complained to police about speeding construction trucks, saying they had been going 60 miles per hour.

An officer was sent to the area and saw the vehicles in question, clocking them at 38 miles per hour.

Nov. 11, 2:30 p.m. – Officers stopped a tractor trailer truck towing a mobile home with Rhode Island license plates as it was heading down Carlisle Road.

The vehicle almost struck several telephone poles and did not have a car in front and back of it signifying warning other motorists of an oversized load.

Two citations were issued to the driver of the truck and then the mobile home was escorted to Carlisle, where police officers in that town continued to escort the mobile home to its destination.

So, which is it? The truck did or did not knock down telephone poles? The title doesn't quite match the writeup.

Sorry Wayne, forgot the almost.
