Delivery Truck Damages Local Yards

A delivery truck is being blamed for damaging two lawns on East Washington Street on Saturday, according to Summerville Police reports.

William Benefield, of 530 East Washington Street, said a delivery truck from National Pool Tile was dropping off supplies around 1:30 p.m. While leaving the residence, the truck damaged his yard.

“The vehicle left the driveway and went several feet onto the grass causing a large rut in the wet ground. The vehicle also crossed the street and went into the grass at 541 East Washington Street digging up the ground there. Benefield said he called the pool company to complain but did not know if they were going to fix the problem or not,” according to Officer Roy Williams.
