A multi-vehicle accident knocked down a pole and a gas pump at a service station in Linden, N.J. Saturday, leaving six people injured.
The boy and his friend were apparently trying to hang a scooter from a pole when the weight of it sent the pole crashing down on them, killing one.
A Bergen County 6-year-old was seriously injured Thursday night in a freak accident. It appears a heavy, metal pole fell and crushed the boy.
“I have a tree that brought down the power lines which caused this pole behind us to break and snap in three spots. We’re bringing crews out here now to repair both locations,” a PSE&G supervisor said.
