Local News Roundup: Driver Collides with Parkway Bridge, Man Accused of Threatening Shooting Tracked with GPS, and More
In the latest news on the go, another out-of-state driver collided with the Parkway bridge yesterday, causing debris to scatter all over the road.
The driver, identified as 64-year-old Lincoln Deloach from Mississippi, drove his tractor-trailer under the bridge, peeling the top of his rig off.
Despite several measures put in place by the state Department of Transportation to improve safety, it is up to drivers to be more aware of the roads and pay attention while on the parkway.
Meanwhile, police have ordered 20-year-old Zachary Mullen to wear a GPS tracking bracelet after he was accused of threatening a shooting at the Manlius Tops.
