Stadium light crashes down in Argyle


ARGYLE, TX (KLTV) - Another stadium light has come crashing down. It was made by Whitco, the same company that manufactured light poles that were falling down in East Texas.

This time, it happened at a baseball field in Argyle, which is just south of Denton. The school is locking down their athletic fields until an engineering firm looks at the problem.

It was a KLTV investigation last fall that linked Whitco poles to stadiums and fields in Arp, Athens, Big Sandy, Hallsville and Overton.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports cracks and breaks at the base of the poles sent nine poles in East Texas tumbling down.
