Bumper-to-bumper mishap on detour route

Three cars headed the same way had a bumper to bumper accident this morning on the Oktoberfest detour route. One public safety responder said a bright sun that faced the motorists could have played a part in the accident on N. Broad, between College and Catherine streets. While 101.7/WGOG NEWS was at the accident scene an evaluation was being made whether one of the drivers needed medical attention at the hospital. The drivers were following a route dictated by the diversion of traffic from a three-block area of Main Street downtown. The city has closed off Main Street, between Ann and College, to allow for pedestrian movement from booth to booth for the downtown part of this weekend’s Oktoberfest.
