    An attempted motor vehicle stop ended in a fiery crash into two utility poles in Windsor early Monday morning.

    A police officer tried to pull someone over on Poquonock Avenue, but the driver took off and rammed into two poles, knocking them over. The car then caught on fire.

    Crews responded to fix the pole damage.

    At around 4:30 a.m. there were about 638 power outages in Windsor, though the power company has not confirmed whether they were related. Power was restored by 5:30 a.m.

    No one was hurt.

    The road was closed, but it has since reopened.
