Driver strikes car, pole at Kennedy Square

NEW CASTLE — Two men were injured Monday when a car struck another car, then a pole downtown at Kennedy Square.

New Castle police said David C. Kennaday, 81, of 221 Sumner Ave., was westbound on West Washington Street just before 9 a.m. and went through a red light. His car hit a car going south on Jefferson Street driven by Patrick J. Quimby, 63, 206 Clen-Moore Blvd., according to police. Kennaday then hit an overhead traffic signal pole.

A witness who was behind Kennaday said he had been stopped at the red light behind Kennaday for two or three minutes before Kennaday drove through the red light.

 Police said Kennaday sustained minor injury, and a passenger in Quimby’s car, Martin Quimby, 51, of 309 W. Fairmont Ave., sustained moderate injury. Both were taken by ambulance to Jameson Hospital.

Attempts to reach a spokesperson at Jameson Hospital for further medical information Monday were unsuccessful.

 Both cars were towed.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
