Construction crews doing sidewalk repair and street work at the closed intersection of Wood Street and Sixth Avenue now have some additional work to do, after a stolen vehicle crashed into the closed intersection Thursday morning.
Just before 10:30 a.m., Pittsburgh police responded to the 300 block of Sixth Avenue for a vehicle reported stolen from the valet area outside the Duquesne Club.
Responding officers tracked the vehicle, which traveled to the North Side and then back Downtown before crashing into the “Road Closed” signs at the intersection of Wood Street and Liberty Avenue.
The vehicle drove into a large construction hole set with rebar and freshly poured concrete, and came to rest against a curb.
Police said the driver, Kennedy Lyons, 27, faces charges
