June 22, 2018

OXFORD — Severe damage was done to a utility pole during a crash Wednesday, fire officials said Thursday evening.

Oxford firefighters responded to a truck into a pole Wednesday night, officials said.

“Due to the severe structural damage of the pole, Eversource needed to come and hold it in place while the tow company lifted the vehicle in the air to avoid gas spilling into the stream,” the department said.

Fire engines, rescue trucks, police, Eversource and the tow companies were among the agencies that responded.

No serious injuries were reported.
