Skunk blamed for Ford Road crash in Bristol Twp.
By Alex Lloyd Gross
As emergency responders were at the scene of a crash where a vehicle sheared a pole in half, they noticed a skunk crossing the street. They held up traffic and let the animal cross. Within a few minutes, utility crews arrived, coned off the area and began their work setting in a new pole. Without anyone to help the skunk cross the street, the creature again ventured out on Ford Road and a woman driving a vehicle swerved to avoid hitting it. She was successful in that regard. The skunk was fine.
Her vehicle, that was another story. She crashed into a fence and a tree. It was totaled. She sustained minor injuries in the early morning crash on February 23 2018. Ford Road in Bristol Township remained closed for several hours .
