A pickup truck struck a scooter being operated by a 76 year old man on October 22, 2013 at about 9:12 am. The crash happened at the junction of Arnold Street and Hillside Avenue. The truck was apparently owned by a landscaping company and was pulling a trailer. The truck was heading east on Arnold Street, and the scooter was going north on Hillside. There is a stop sign for Arnold Street traffic, and the truck reportedly went through it.
