GRAFTON, Mass.-- A driver was sent to the hospital Wednesday after the car they were driving crashed into a telephone pole at 155 Providence Road splitting it in half.
According to Grafton Police, the accident occurred Wednesday at 5:26 p.m. Two police units, an ambulance, fire and heavy rescue arrived on the scene. No information was available on the person driving the car or which hospital they were sent to.
According to one neighbor, the car's impact on the pole was so intense it shook the building. He said the car was traveling north when it hit the pole, spun 25 yards on the opposite side of the road and hit a guard rail.
A second neighbor, who arrived home moments after the accident occurred, said the rescue squad spent more than 30 minutes with the Jaws of Life cutting the car roof off to extricate the victim.
Neighbors who live in the apartment complex lost power for a time as crews worked to repair the pole and downed wires.
The Grafton Daily Voice will provide more details as they become available.
