Route 77 at Route 20 is closed because a power outage caused by an accident has disabled the stop lights.
No one is injured, but there's no power in that area.
The vehicle apparently slid off the road and hit a meter box. National Grid has been notified.
UPDATE 3:54 p.m.: Darien fire says the meter box has power, but will have to be turned off so the DOT can fix the stop lights.
UPDATE 4:30 p.m.: Darien fire is back in service and law enforcement is at the intersection.
UPDATE 7:09 p.m.: Law enforcement on scene says the DOT may not be able to complete all the repairs to get the signal lights working again. They are requesting portable stop signs for the night.
