Easthampton police say a section of Union Street is closed following a crash which occurred late Tuesday night.
Right now, Union Street is closed from Cottage to Railroad streets.
Eversource is reporting 13 customers without power in the area. Those outages are expected to be restored around noon.
Easthampton police told Western Mass News that an SUV, driven by a male, crashed straight into the telephone pole on Union Street. The man was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Western Mass News spoke with one resident on her way to work Wednesday morning, she says she is one of many who take Union Street every single morning.
“Normally I get some gas, and then go down this road and go down through Springfield to work,” Maggie Dietrich of Easthampton said. "It’s an inconvenience, but people will figure out another way to work, like I will.”
