SUMMERSIDE - Police and fire departments have had a busy Saturday thus far.

Police direct traffic at the corner of Granville and Ryan Street after a traffic light came crashing down into the intersection around noon Saturday. 

SUMMERSIDE - Police and fire departments have had a busy Saturday thus far.

Units across the city have been responding to calls regarding trees on power poles, fires, and even a traffic light that fell into an intersection.

Just after 12 noon police were called to the intersection of Granville and Ryan Street when a traffic light came crashing down into the traffic.

“A car was driving under the pole when it came down,” said Josh Gallant, who was eating across the street at A&W. “The guy sitting next to me had the best view, he told me the car had to swerve at the last second to avoid being hit.”

Traffic in the area is still interrupted.

There were no injuries reported.

Across town the fire department was on scene of a small fire near the Mulberry Motel around 11:45 a.m.

A tree broke off and fell onto a power line causing a power outage at the motel.

During the motel fire, crews rushed off after receiving another call, this time at a residence on Lily Crescent.

The wind had knocked a tree branch onto power lines, once again causing small fire.

Both fires were under control by the time crews arrived.

There were no injuries at either incident.
