I heard the boom from clear over on Pringle and saw the power go out on Wood St. Didn't know why until now.

A car struck a utility pole in the area of 4 Law St. about 10 minutes ago, causing a power outage in some parts of the city. The pole has high-tension wires and it's snapped in half. Traffic will be rerouted at Jackson and Chestnut streets and Law and Walnut streets. Unknown injuries. National Grid is notified, no ETA given. In some places, power went out and within, say, two minutes came back on again.
UPDATE 7:23 p.m.: National Grid is on scene.
UPDATE 7:31 p.m.: There were no injuries. The driver was a sign-off.
