SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Flanders Road is closed while Eversource crews work to replace a pole taken out by a car, and to restore power in the area.
Southington police say they responded to Flanders Road between Mine Hollow Road and Malcein Drive early Tuesday morning, at 2:48 a.m., after a 19-year-old crashed into a utility pole in the area.
Madison Wells, from Southington, was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries.
Dispatchers say the impact of the crash “snapped the pole in half,” and Eversource is reporting 398 outages as a result.
Utility crews with Eversource are on-scene replacing the pole, and estimate power should be restored by 11:00 a.m. The road is closed between Mine Hollow Road and Malcein Drive in the meantime.
