Massachusetts car accident causes power outages and road closures

A recent early morning car accident left several hundred Massachusetts residents without power for hours. This single car accident sent two people to the hospital after the car crashed into a power pole. Live electrical wires were lying across the road which caused a road closure on a highly traveled road affecting the morning commute.

While power was restored within a couple of hours, the southbound road closure lasted for several hours because of debris scattered from the accident. The northbound lanes also had to be closed for a period of time for power crews to be able to repair the lines. A road closure such as this can be a logistical nightmare for a morning commuter.

The vehicle was reported to have rolled multiple times. The male driver was taken to the hospital with what appeared at the time of the accident to be serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
