Crash closes part of Old Colchester Road in Montville

Montville — A portion of Old Colchester Road is closed as crews work to replace a utility pole, police said early Wednesday.

Police said about 3:30 a.m. that the road was closed between Adamo Avenue and Black Ash Road because a car had crashed into a pole in the area.

Oakdale firefighters described the early morning wreck as "serious" and said crews took two people to the hospital. Photos from the scene show a pickup truck with its front end smashed as well as a snapped pole with wires down across the road.

Police expected the closure would last "several hours" and asked motorists to plan accordingly.
