An officer spoke to the driver, and the Department of Public Works was notified about the need to restore the lights.

Heavy rains forced a temporary shutdown of a portion of Penzance Road at 3:48 Tuesday. Police put out closure signs for a short time, but the road was reopened later.

A Broadway man was transported to Addison Gilbert at 6:40 a.m. on Wednesday.
