Hockey stick used to bash township truck over road salt beef

Road salt

SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. (AP) – Police in a southeastern Pennsylvania township are investigating a hockey stick attack on a public works truck, apparently by someone upset that their street wasn’t getting road salt after recent snows.

The Bucks County Courier Times (http://bit.ly/18WHS3e ) reports the Northampton Township truck’s window was found smashed Wednesday by someone who left a note saying, “Developments need salt.”

Township public works director Gary Crossland says the municipality is struggling with a shortage of road salt after a string of storms.

He called the attack on the truck “ridiculous” and asked, “Why would I waste salt on developments when we’re so stretched for it?”

Police are trying to figure out who smashed the truck window.
