An SUV collided with a utility pole on Morton St., causing power outages in a Stoughton neighborhood Tuesday morning.
There were no injuries in the single car accident, which occurred at 6:54 a.m. on July 17, according to the Stoughton Fire Department.
A car driving on Morton St. hit a pole, situated between the street's intersections with Plain St. and Columbus Ave.
The Stoughton Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene, as did utility crews.
"We were awakened by the "BOOM" of the power going out when the fuse on the pole blew and then moments later by the sirens of the Stoughton PD and FD responding," Jeff Weitzenkorn, who lives near where the crash took place, wrote in an email.
"Power was restored within about an hour and cable within about three hours," he said.
