Lower Mac Barn Struck Again By Hit-Run Driver, Police Say
Structure at Mountain and Schoeneck roads has been hit several times by turning trucks.
A Lower Macungie barn that has become an unintentional target for hit-and-run drivers has been hit again, according to police.
A concrete barrier and shed that is attached to the barn at Mountain and Schoeneck roads was struck by a truck trailer between 6 p.m. Jan. 2 and 8:30 a.m. Jan. 3, according to state police at Fogelsville. The tractor-trailer was traveling east on Mountain Road and attempting to turn north onto Schoeneck Road.
The driver did not stop to report the accident, and police said they did not know if the trucker was injured.
Police did not have a description of the truck.
The barn also was struck on May 22 by a hit-and-run tractor-trailer driver. State police announced that they charged a Georgia man with hit and run after his rig was found parked on Industrial Boulevard in Upper Macungie Township.
Readers at that time said the structure had been hit several times within months prior to May 22.
Mountain Road is a narrow, windy dark rural road. Some residents have complained that the township should limit traffic on the road because of those conditions.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 610-395-1438.
