OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn utility pole snapped and crashed to the ground after a dumptruck snagged low hanging wires on Beech Street on Thursday morning.

It happened in front of 54 Beech St. before 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6 and National Grid cut power to the neighborhood, said Fire Chief Phil Stevens. The power will remain off until the snapped pole can be removed and replaced.

National Grid said about five homes were affected and expected power to be restored by 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Nobody was hurt, Stevens said.
