A U-Haul trailer appears to have come free from the trailer hitch of the towing vehicle and then careened into a pedestrian crosswalk pole in Poulsbo at the intersection of NE Lincoln Road and 10th Ave NE.

David Gesell, an officer with the Poulsbo Police Department, was at the scene and said it initially appeared to be a fairly straightforward incident. The trailer came free from the hitch, and rolled into a pole supporting a push-to-walk button for the nearby crosswalk.

Also at the scene was Poulsbo Public Works Superintendent Mike Lund, who said he had been in conversations with Kitsap County Public Works to remedy the problem and get a new pole installed. Lund said he didn’t anticipate the fix would come at any cost to the citizens of Poulsbo.
