Posted: Updated:
BOLTON, CT (WFSB) -

A section of Route 85 is closed in Bolton after a car lost control and crashed near Iroquois Trail.

State police said it appears the driver was attempting to exit Interstate 384 and, instead of coming to a stop, traveled across Route 85 towards Iroquois Trail, where the car hit a utility pole.

The car caught fire as it impacted the pole and also brought down wires across the roadway.

Police expect Route 85 between Williams Road and Mt. Sumner Drive to remain closed for several hours as utility crews work to repair the damaged pole and downed wires.

The driver of the car was taken to Manchester Memorial Hospital with minor injuries, police said.
