Washington St. closed in Norwich after crash


Norwich police said Washington Street will be closed until further notice after an overnight crash.

Officials said they were called to the area shortly after 1:30 a.m. after receiving reports of a single car accident.

Police said the vehicle struck a telephone pole, which caused wires to come down across the roadway. The occupant of the vehicle was trapped for a short time until the power company was able to disconnect the downed wires.

They were removed a short time later and taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The road is closed from the intersection with Route 2/32 north towards Town Street.
