By: Rich Hosford
Police responded to a motor vehicle accident that left a Burlington neighborhood without power on Thursday.
According to Burlington Police at about noon they responded to the area of 84 Locust Street. A woman had struck a telephone pole, breaking it, and the pole had landed on the roof of her vehicle.
Police say the woman had minor injuries. Though she initially declined medical attention she eventually accepted it. At no point was she trapped in the vehicle.
Eversource had to cut power to the line so the car could be towed and the lines repaired. The telephone pole will need to be replaced, police said.
