Just after 12:15 p.m., officers responded to Route 34 westbound between Forest Road and Central Avenue on reports of a crash. Upon arrival, officers found a vehicle upside down against a utility pole, blocking the westbound lanes.
West Haven Police said that the accident did cause some damage to utility poles. Motorists were routed around the accident for almost two hours to give crews time to clear the car from the roadway and make emergency repairs to the utility pole.
Police are still conducting their investigation into what may have caused the crash.
