Monday, Feb. 24

At 11:20 a.m., police responded to a three-car accident in the parking lot of Gold's Gym on East Main Street. 

At 12:17 p.m., police responded to Peter's Market on Purchase Street after receiving a report of a male party who allegedly stole beer from the business. The man was reportedly last seen walking towards the center of town wearing a green and blue checkered shirt and a white hat, according to police records. 

At 12:26 p.m., police responded to Purchase Street on a report of a driver who passed another in a no-passing zone before attempting to get out of his vehicle and yell at the other driver. Upon arrival, police determined that the man was in a hurry to get to the hospital for a family emergency. 

At 12:46 p.m. and 1:13 p.m., police responded to accidents on Main Street and Cedar Street, respectively. No injuries were reported in either incident. 

At 2:28 p.m., a resident of Sumner Street reported that upon pulling into his driveway, a nearby crossing guard approached him and started yelling at him using vulgar language. 

At 4:01 p.m., police received a report from a driver in the area of Target on Fortune Boulevard who was allegedly struck by a white GMC Acadia, the driver of which allegedly left the scene of the accident. The Franklin Police Department was notified and responded to the owner's home, advising the individual to contact Milford police. An officer on scene of the incident reported that it was not a hit-and-run and the damage may have been caused by a door from another vehicle. 

At 4:24 p.m., police received a report from an individual near Plains Automotive on West Street that a driver in the area had changed speeds and was seen driving with the hazard lights on.

@ 2:28 incident. As I witnessed I didn't hear vulgar language.from what I saw the resident went after the crossing guard for not letting him turn onto summer st. The guard was doin her job.even the buses had there stop signs out with flashing lights.I have noticed a lot lately drivers in milford don't give a dam bout the crossing guards. Is it gonna take someone's child even a crossing guard to get hurt for simple common sense and obeying the Law????

Would this be the same crossing guard that was yelling at people yesterday to slow down when they weren't speeding? First time in my life I have been reprimanded for speeding. I was going EIGHT MPH in a school zone(20 mph). She screamed at me "Slow the HELL down." Someone needs to take a deep breath and calm down before going back to work...

@ 12:26 PM incident: "... get out of his vehicle and yellow at the other drive. "?? Spell check run amok? Probably intended "... yell at the other driver" (though I don't condone the act itself). It sounds like a lot of drivers in town are losing patience with each other. Sadly, this isn't very surprising.

Gotta say, I live in a heavy "school traffic zone" from 215-300 and the driving and "road rage" is absolutely out of control. I have never in my life heard so many horns blown for so long as I do now a days! There are 15 cars in line, traffic isn't moving and someone lays on their horn for 2 minutes EVERYDAY as if it's going to change the fact that the LIGHT at the end of the street is RED. I hate to point this out, but it's school traffic that happens every school day, and that is controlled by both a crossing guard AND lights, so when traffic is stopped there is NO need to beep for extended periods of time-traffic will move when possible, the rest of the world doesn't need to listen to your horn, and if you're so upset (every single day), how about you go a different way home or leave yourself some more time to get where you need to be?! Don't even get me started on the lines of cars that pass the bus with the STOP sign out and the lights flashing.... everyone needs to calm down just a bit around schools when driving.

@ Jennifer Ty for that comment..I'm glad I'm not the only one.
concerned citizen February 27, 2014 at 12:46 AM
@ milfordmomof3 If some actually most drivers learned to stop when there a bus stopped and flashing and hold on a sec for crossing guards..maybe they wouldn't flip out. I have 2boys myself and my oldest all most got hit by a truck in front of Charlie's last yr if it wasn't for the crossing guard jumping out.. So if they have to yell so be it..TO ALL GUARDS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK DON'T LET THE IGNORANT DRIVERS GET TO YA...oh an $250.00 fine if ya get reported for whatever to me not worth it..just sayin

You're most certainly not the only one! I happened to be outside recently when they started. I counted 7 people on their cell phones and their hands on their horns in a matter of 5 minutes. Inevitably their frustration (at sitting in 5 minutes of traffic) led to them banging their hands on the steering wheel and/or yelling in the car. Can you imagine what the kids are hearing come out of their mouths?! Everyone needs to calm down a bit! Wouldn't that time getting mad, be better spent in talking to the kids about how their day went etc?

Jennifer your absolutely right..no matter what town it is during school hours its a nightmare..find an other route like you said if its bothersome

I didn't have road rage, wasn't speeding, was on Sumner after the buses had left. So none of your comments apply to the situation I mentioned. I had no issue with traffic(it was light then). My comment was that the crossing guard(who was busy talking to a friend in her car while kids were getting out instead of watching) decided to yell at me about speeding when I wasn't. I agree completely with you about people getting mad about buses and being dangerous driving around them and speeding. But that wasn't what I was talking about...
