I agree with the prior response.  You can also contact google directly to request that the information be corrected.

The simple answer is, because yahoo has bad data.


The real answer is going to depend on the street. Could be another street with an identical name, a mislabeled or misspelled street, a bad data source for yahoo, a misaligned data source (rare, but it happens when multiple sources are mosiaced together), or even a quirky property. Streets are sometimes attributed by the properties lining them, so a property with a strange address on it could give an adjacent street a wrong name.
