GLOUCESTER CITY, N.J.-- A broken PSE&G utility pole blocks the pedestrian sidewalk on St. Mary Street, near old St. Mary's Cemetery. According to Gloucester City Police Chief Brian Morrell, a hit and run driver struck the pole 12 days ago,  on Thursday, March 17, early in the morning.  

The strong winds today were blowing the broken pole back and forth. The wires that are connected to the pole were also swaying in the wind and are hanging low to the ground.  PSE&G is aware of the hazard. Last year a broken pole knocked down by a wind storm blocked the sidewalk on Route 130 near the borderline of Gloucester City and Brooklawn. That hazard remained that way for over a month.
