A tractor trailer hit an overhanging tree limb around 3 p.m. on Green Street on Monday, 10/7/19, causing quite the sight and some damage to the top of the container. The driver, Joseph Albino, approximately 43, of Atlantic City, NJ, was driving southbound on Green Street between Washington and Center streets when another vehicle approached from the northbound side. Mr. Albino told police he pulled to the right to avoid the oncoming vehicle and the top of his truck hit the overhanging branch. He stopped immediately to prevent further damage and waited for officials. The other vehicle continued on its way. The fire department and tree warden were called in to assist with removal of the truck. The driver eventually made his delivery to the shipyard, but the plan was to park the container due to the damage. There were no injuries and the tree reportedly sustained only minor damage.
