Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Police worked five crashes overnight. One crash involved injuries. Officers handled seven motorist assists. Calls-for-service in all three districts remain lower than average. Residential alarm calls topped the list again; there were five domestic disturbances across the city.
There was an electrical problem at Twelve Oaks and Sue Ellen Way when a transformer reportedly blew. Another electrical issue involving a utility pole on fire was reported at Tiny Town Road and Needmore Road.Riverview Drive from Maple Lane to Poplar Lane was closed at 4:46am due to emergency repairs to a broken water main. This street is still closed at this time.
Another water main broke near Pageant Lane and Crossland Avenue, causing the road to be closed for several hours. The line has been repaired and the road is now open. The area has been salted, but is still dangerous.
Sergeant David Keenom stated,” The street there is open again, but it’s a skating rink. Drivers should be extremely careful.”
District Two officers also had to assist a couple of drivers who drove their vehicles into snow banks. “The piles of snow are not soft. They’ve melted and refrozen until they are more like concrete,” stated Keenom.
Officers investigated a complaint of seven intoxicated persons fighting in the street on Mann Circle, but most of them had dispersed by the time officers arrived and no arrests were made.
All three community policing districts report that all main roads are in good shape. Conditions on most side streets have improved. Many parking lots are still treacherous all over the city.
