Mystery driver takes out bulletin board in Glen Ellen
Early Sunday morning, Aug. 23, an unidentified car collided with the old Glen Ellen community bulletin board in the Post Office parking lot. A witness stated that he heard screeching tires followed by a loud crash shortly after midnight, but by the time he arrived at the scene to see if anyone needed help, the driver had fled. A pedestrian crossing sign was also felled during the accident.
Ironically, Saturday afternoon, the Glen Ellen Forum Projects Committee had just completed installation of a new and improved community bulletin board at the Glen Ellen Market and had planned to take the old one down. The rogue driver saved the committee some demolition work. In another stroke of luck, a large oak tree in the parking lot protected the new kiosk the committee installed earlier this year.
By early Sunday morning members of the community had already cleaned up the mess and transferred the posted items to the new bulletin board.
