(Thur., September 4, 2014) The director of the Conyers Public Works and Transportation Dept., Brad Sutton, told 11Alive News that he's found out the manhole is an AT&T "vault," a manhole that gives AT&T crews access to underground lines and cables. It is not a city-owned and maintained manhole after all, he said. He said he called Latasha Owens Thursday to give her the update, and he gave her the contact information to the AT&T claims department to try to track down what happened.
CONYERS, Ga. (Wed., September 3, 2014) -- A woman in Conyers is banged up and bruised but alive after a freak jogging accident.
She was jogging Tuesday night on a sidewalk, and fell into an open manhole.
It was a potentially fatal accident, and police think it may have been caused by pranksters who, perhaps, removed the manhole cover thinking it would be funny.
