Accidents, Car Fire, Water Break Mar Saturday

June 27th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

A couple of traffic accidents reported midday Saturday. Southbound Route 220 was blocked in the area of Hannah Plaza for about an hour, and another mishap shut down Mount Savage Road for less than an hour.

Later, a car fire was reported on Interstate 68 near the 46 mile marker. That shut down the eastbound lanes just before 6 PM.

A water main break in the area of Wendy's on Cumberland's South Centre Street cause some issues on Saturday afternoon. Water crews from the city were dispatched to fix the main.

Most often, water main breaks occur during the winter and spring, when the ground freezes and thaws around the pipes.
