Tractor Trailer Strikes Pole and Downs Wires on Middlesex Turnpike

By: Rich Hosford

Part of Middlesex Turnpike was temporarily blocked off on Monday as crews worked to clear power lines that fell after a tractor trailer truck struck a utility pole. The crash happened near the Wheeler Road intersection in front of the Dunkin Donuts and Shell Gas Station.

Eversource crews were called to the scene and the power was cut to the area while they worked to repair the damage. It was originally expected the repairs to take multiple hours but they were able to complete the work and open the street in under an hour.
