PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Some south Philadelphia residents and a TV station are waiting for the city to explain why a pothole was filled with asphalt and the smashed-in orange pylon that had been marking the hazard.

Neighbors tell WTXF-TV (https://bit.ly/28PZ0ZI ) they called to get the hole fixed on 5th Street, a busy road that runs in front of Dr. Brian Kron’s Eye Center.

The doctor says three men and a driver came out to fix the pothole and tossed some asphalt into the hole and left the pylon in the hole, too.

Kron says when he asked if they were going to fix the hole the right way “they just laughed and drove away.”

The station emailed a picture of the pylon-filled-pothole to the city Streets Department, but hasn’t gotten a response.
