Police seek help IDing crosswalk crasher

A car hit and knocked over a median sign on Main Street at its intersection with Union Street by the River Falls Public Library. As a result, the flashing lights on that intersection are both out.

The cross walk is still open, City Communications Manager Mary Zimmermann said. However, pedestrians have been urged to cross with caution, and reminded that orange flags are available to use while crossing the street.

A Facebook post by the River Falls Police Department said the department is looking for the public's assistance identifying the vehicle and person who hit the sign.

The crash happened in the overnight hours between Feb. 7 and Feb. 8.

Anyone with information can call 715-425-0909.
