Car Flipped Upside-Down, Power Out in West Hartford

A car was flipped upside-down in West Hartford on Wednesday night. 

The crash happened after a car hit a pole at the intersection of South Main Street and New Britain Avenue by the Dunkin' Donuts. Police said the pole was laying on South Main Street and it will need to be replaced. 

Police said when they arrived there was a small car fire happening and firefighters worked to get the driver out of the car safely. He was the only one inside the vehicle and sustained what appears to be minor injuries, police said. 

Traffic lights and homes in the area are without power. Eversource said there were more than 1,200 customers in West Hartford without power at one point. 

Emergency crews were working to make sure none of the wires are live. It was not clear when the power would be restored.
