Police are investigating a single-car crash at Oakland Street between Sheldon Road and South Street in Manchester Wednesday night and they said the road remains still shut down Thursday morning as Frontier Communications works to fix a severed telephone pole.

CT Transit and Daatco, a school bus company, have been advised and might need to change their morning routes, according to police.

A portion of Manchester was without power after the car crashed into a pole and brought down wires Wednesday night.

The crash knocked out power to some residents in the area. As of 11 p.m., Eversource reported approximately 700 homes without power. Eversource is reporting fewer than two power outages Thursday morning.

It's unknown if there are any injuries.

No additional information was immediately available.
