Eagles accident

    If only the game had been played Sunday . . .

    Adding to the rants and raves about the postponement of Sunday’s Eagles game to Tuesday night is a real concern: a police officer was struck by a pickup truck as while on duty after the game.

     

    CBS3 reports the officer was struck after midnight at Front Street and Pattison Avenue, while directing traffic from the game.
