Vehicle accident exposes utility wiring at busy Laredo intersection

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A car accident shuts down a central Laredo intersection for nearly seven hours.

Police believe a trailer or a large vehicle hit a utility police, causing the truck to rip off a large section of cables.

The driver allegedly fled the scene and was nowhere to be found.
Not only did the driver rip out the wiring, they also knocked over a traffic light and a utility police.

Crews had to close down the intersection of San Dario and Calton to allow workers time to repair the cables.

After several hours crews finished fixing the damage and reopened the streets at around 4 p.m.
