On Friday, June 25, two separate residential intersections in the Fairfield neighborhood of Eden Prairie suffered damage to street signs as a result of a vehicle cutting the corner.
On the southeast corner of Hanover Lane a vehicle went over the curb into a yard and flattened the street sign and clipped a mailbox post, smashing one metal mailbox flat.
There were reports in the residential neighborhood that a large semitrailer-type vehicle had proceeded through the intersection at the time of the incident.
Approximately one block away on the southeast intersection of Scenic Heights Road and Braxton Drive a street sign and a road light were flattened.
The Eden Prairie police department received numerous reports of the smashed signs and are investigating.
