A pickup truck swerved off a West Watertown road and struck a utility pole, knocking out power to nearly 200 in the area.
The accident occurred around 6:40 a.m. Friday and reportedly involved a commercial van. The white full-sized pickup hit the pole on Philip Darch Road, about a block from Lexington Street. The pole broke a few feet from the bottom, fell, and took down power and other utility lines.
No injuries were reported, according to Watertown Police.
An Eversource official said that about 175 customers in the area lost power. The pole was replaced by workers from Verizon, which owns the pole. Power was restored at about 10:30 a.m.
