NY Ave car crash flattens street lamp in front of Yale Lofts

I’m a little late with a report on this incident that occurred late last week as it took some time to obtain photos.

From a Yale resident:

There was a major traffic accident along NY Ave (on either late Sept 3rd or early AM September 4th), someone driving super-fast down New York Avenue by Yale Lofts took out the bus stop and a lamp post. The fallen lamp post is now blocking part of the Yale driveway.

From the photos below it appears the crash leveled a P6 Metrobus sign and a cobra light post.
