FARGO — The intersection of 32nd Avenue South and 45th Street South will be a four-way stop for up to one week after a vehicle crashed into a transformer, damaging traffic signals, Fargo public works officials said Friday, July 12.
The Fargo Police Department says the crash was reported at approximately 2 p.m. when a truck crashed into an electrical box at a corner of the intersection.
An 18-year-old male driver was cited for failing to have his vehicle under control, according to police. There were no injuries in the crash.
Police say that the crash temporarily disabled traffic lights at the intersection.
The City of Fargo Signs and Signals department and Xcel Energy restored power shortly after the crash, allowing the signals to blink their red lights.
In addition to being a four-way stop, the city of Fargo said the intersection will have a reduced number of lanes until the signals can be repaired. There is no exact timeline for when they’ll be fixed, the city said.
