NBC Universal, Inc.

Route 6 in Bristol was closed for hours Wednesday after a crash and reopened Wednesday night.

A vehicle struck a utility pole and broke it around 2 a.m. and the police said wires and traffic lights in the intersection hung too low for tractor-trailers and taller vehicles to safely pass under.

Just after 7:30 p.m., police said the road had reopened.

Route 6, also known as Farmington Avenue, was closed to eastbound traffic near Farmington Avenue and King Street. King Street was also closed to northbound traffic from Louisiana Avenue to Farmington Avenue.

A detour was set up for eastbound traffic on Farmington Avenue and northbound traffic on King Street, police said.

Westbound traffic on Farmington Avenue and southbound traffic on King Street are not affected.

No injuries were reported. Eversource responded to make repairs.
