Car Crash This Morning Cause for Power Outage
Driver struck telephone pole this morning in West Tisbury, left many without power
If your alarm clock didn’t go off this morning, you have a good excuse. At approximately 6:30 this morning, a driver hit a telephone pole on Old County Road causing many in West Tisbury and Chilmark to lose power.
The driver was transported to Martha’s Vineyard Hospital with non-life threatening injuries while NStar went to work on getting the power back on.
Old County Road was closed in both directions for much of the morning and is, at press time, only open to one lane of traffic between Scotchman’s Lane and Whippoorwill Farm.
