Turmoil on Hannah Street

A mechanical digger destined for the Module demolition site was brought down Hannah Street, on a trailer pulled by a prime mover. The driver got out without stopping the engine, and the combination started rolling forward, coming to a stop when the prime mover hit the tree just before the pedestrian crossing. A large crowd watched the embarrassed driver as he got back into the cab and put on the handbrake! Then he had to get the digger off the trailer so he could back the trailer clear of the tree, reload the digger, and drive off.
The scar in the tree trunk is still very visible.
