Aug. 4—Flying tire

The wooden sign in front of Frank Novak's realty office at 1046 Main St. realty office was damaged again. It was recently damaged by the wheel of a pickup truck that dislodged after the truck was struck by a northbound Mercedes Benz that crossed the center line. Novak said there were four prior incidents where his sign was ruined by vehicles traveling south that lost control at a bend in the road. This time, a Mercedes Benz traveling north crossed the center line and collided with a pickup truck traveling south, ripping a rear wheel off the truck and catapulting it into the air. The wheel damaged the stone wall and flower bed surrounding the sign, which was also ruined along with its mounts. Novak installed a banner while he waits for a new sign to be built
