Let’s call this one, "when manhole covers attack."
The driver of a pick-up truck was heading west on West Main Street in Batavia around 5:30 this morning. As he neared Union St. his pick-up rolled over a manhole.
Police say he must have hit the manhole just right. The manhole cover flew off the pavement, hit the underside of the truck causing it to go out of the control and sending the several hundred pound manhole cover flying. No one was hurt. Batavia Police are calling the incident, "bizarre."
