NORWALK, Conn. — A sign fell on the southbound lanes of Route 7 on Wednesday afternoon near the interchange with I-95, a highway worker reported. 

Cars were being turned around and sent in the other direction. Drivers reported congestion on Route 1 and surrounding streets. 

Southbound Route 7 was closed between Exit 1 and I-95, the Connecticut Department of Transportation says on its website. 

The 39a exit ramp from the Merritt Parkway to Route 7 also was closed.

Someone could have really gotten hurt.

Thank God no one apparently did get hurt.

Quick, someone blame the police.

Only when necessary and unfortunately most times in Norwalk it is as the NPD is a complete and total failure

Haha, I had the same thought. It's clearly the police's fault, and not the dump truck driver whose raised truck bed knocked down the sign.
