3 Wallingford Schools Had 3-Hour Delay After Crash and Power Outage

Three Wallingford schools operated on a three-hour delay Friday after a vehicle crashed into a pole and knocked out power, according to officials.

Highland Elementary School, Mary G. Fritz Elementary School and James H. Moran Middle School all had a three-hour delay. Later Friday morning, Wallingford Superintendent Sal Menzo Tweeted that power was back on and school would be in session after the three-hour delay.

A note from the superintendent’s office said power was out at the Fritz and Moran schools, but school was canceled at all three schools so parents would not have too must disruption because several families have children in multiple schools.

Police were called around 6 a.m. after a driver hit a pole Route 68 and Main Street, sparking a minor fire. One person was transported from the scene.

Power was restored by 7 a.m. to most people, but power remains out at United Concrete.
