Derby – Power Outage And Injuries In Crash

A vehicle crashed into a utility pole in Derby Tuesday afternoon.

The intersection of Sunset Drive and Hillcrest Avenue was blocked off following a crash that occurred just before 4:00 p.m. According to reports, a vehicle traveling in the area veered off the roadway and crashed into a power pole, resulting in a power outage that affected around 70 customers of United Illuminating. The driver of the vehicle sustained injuries and was taken to Griffin Hospital for treatment. This case is currently under active investigation.
