Parnall Law News Team

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — One of four newly-installed traffic arms was struck and damaged in downtown Albuquerque over the weekend, according to KOB4.

Albuquerque Police did not specify when exactly the crash occurred, but when it was first reported by KOB4 on Monday evening, August 28, visible damage could be observed on the barricade at Central Avenue and 8th Street, in the Raynolds Addition area.

At this time, authorities have not released a description of the striking vehicle, as the driver had been able to flee the scene without notice.

KOB4 noted that the destroyed traffic arm, installed this past June, is one of four barricades meant to close off Central Avenue’s downtown stretch during the weekends. The four arms collectively cost the City $90,000.

No information regarding potential repair costs has been made available.
