WAKEFIELD — Police yesterday dealt with a number of calls related to collisions, a smashed rear windshield, downed wires, pot holes and water leaks into roadways.

None of the accidents resulted in injury but one car was stripped of its side mirror, a casualty possibly rooted in the narrowed streets due to tall snowbanks.

The Fire Department and Action Ambulance also responded.
