Our apologies to anyone who tried to stop in or call the Peninsula store yesterday (Wed. Jun. 18). We closed early due to an unfortunate incident that happened up the street.
A little before 4pm, a truck hauling a load of bricks lost his brakes while coming down the hill on Rt 303 eastbound. He ditched to the side, spilling most of the bricks on the road, and knocking out a utility pole.
Power was out in the whole village for over two hours. The driver was reportedly unhurt.
