Three days after a woman dodged two utility poles and crashed into an Elizabeth Township hardware store, one of those poles is gone.

The poles stood outside R.C. Walter and Sons along Route 48 south of the Boston Bridge. One pole was erected alongside a pole damaged in another traffic accident some time ago.

However, Walter family members pointed out after Sunday's crash the damaged pole remained.

West Penn Power previously moved its lines to the new pole. A Comcast spokesman said on Tuesday his utility had followed suit and Verizon completed the work on Wednesday.

“Our crews were able to transfer those wires from that old pole to the new pole and the old pole that had been damaged has been removed,” Verizon spokesman Lee Gierczynski said.
