A tractor-trailer attempted to do a U-turn in the Gander Mountain parking lot. He cut his turn too tight, and took out that light pole when the rear wheels of his trailer rode up on the side of it --- it was tilted at 45 degree angle when it fell over!
He then tried to high-tail it outta there, but the store manager saw it, as well as the drive-thru teller at the BBT bank which had a clear view of the events. Store manager chased him down and caught up to him at the traffic light, which caught him with a red light!! Gave him the riot act, that's for sure!
There were 2 different 480 Volt circuits passing thru that light pole, which had to remain connected for the rest of the parking lot to be lit at night. They provided the bucket to protect those wires/connections while we were waiting for the new pole and fixtures to arrive.
I drilled the pole base out, and installed some anchors and ground wire clamps to keep the bucket in place for the interim. With the wires inside, nobody messed with `em.
