Waterbury police have closed a section of Route 73, which is also known as Watertown Avenue, after an overnight crash.
The road is currently closed between Media and Deerfield avenues after a car struck a utility pole, police said.
Power was knocked out to more than 650 area residents because of the accident.
Crews from Connecticut Light & Power are on the scene at this time and are working to make repairs.
Officials said they hope to have the road reopened shortly.
