A driver was trapped inside a car after crashing into a light pole on Hillside Street in East Hartford on Wednesday morning, which left thousands without power for part of the morning.
The driver was trapped when wires were knocked down in the area of Hillside Street, firefighters rescued the driver from the car and the vehicle has been cleared from the scene.
At first, slightly over 4,000 in East Hartford didn't have power and that number dropped to 2,164 by 6:07 a.m., according to Eversource. As of 6:24 a.m., that number was down to two households. Police believe the outages are related to the crash, but that is unknown at this time.
There is no word on injuries or the driver's condition.
Hillside Street was closed temporarily, but has since been reopened.
