RESIDENTS OF Silver Hill Housing area and surrounding districts were shaken by a loud bang minutes before 1 a.m Wednesday morning.
Startled homeowners saw a Barbados Light & Power (BL&P) pole broken at its base and hanging precariously in front of one of the houses on Block 8.
A bus pole was also knocked to the ground.
Three vehicles parked in the car park between Block 7 and Block 8 were also seriously damaged, one of them extensively by a Toyota Hilux SUV which was headed east. The SUV also received major damage.
The driver and other occupant of the Toyota Hilux were reported by eyewitnesses to have walked away from the scene apparently unharmed.  
Police subsequently arrived on the scene and carried out detailed investigations at what was described as a “crime scene” by one of the officers.
By 1.30 a.m. the BL&P had dispatched a vehicle to the scene to rectify the situation with the broken pole. (WC)
