PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - An Eyewitness News Exclusive – thieves leave potentially dangerous road hazards around Philadelphia and PennDOT is shocked to learn who is accused of doing the stealing for scrap metal.
When you’re driving on a highway, you probably don’t even realize they’re there: drainage grates found along the shoulder.
According to PennDOT, they have been “mysteriously disappearing” over the last year, putting drivers in danger.
Then came news of an arrest on Tuesday of four men, subcontractors hired by PennDOT to maintain the highways.
