Greensburg police are looking for help identifying a truck that pulled down a decorative light pole Tuesday morning.
Police Chief Chad Zucco said the truck had a long flatbed trailer and appeared to be hauling gas drilling equipment through the city at 8:44 a.m. Something on the truck hit a pole on South Main Street in front of First Commonwealth Bank and the driver did not stop, he said.
The pole is valued at about $12,000, Zucco said.
Police don’t know the name of the company or business that owns the truck. A surveillance image shows that it has a red cab with dark lettering on the passenger side door.
Anyone who recognizes the truck is asked to call police at 724-834-3800.
A man was taken into custody following a brief standoff with Greensburg police on Tuesday night.
Police were called to a home on the 300 block of Alexander Avenue around 5:30 p.m., where armed officers surrounded the house.
