New Bedford Woman and Her Passenger Injured in Dartmouth Crash
DARTMOUTH (WBSM) — A portion of State Road in Dartmouth was temporarily shut down Sunday morning following a crash in which a New Bedford woman and her passenger were injured.
According to Dartmouth Police, officers and other emergency personnel responded to State Road near Maine Avenue for a single vehicle crash into a utility pole at about 8:28 a.m. this morning.
They said they arrived to find a 2006 Nissan Sentra had left the road and struck the pole, causing it to crack at the base. The operator of the vehicle was identified only as a 19-year-old New Bedford woman.
The driver and her passenger were both taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.
Traffic on State Road was detoured for about 20 minutes, and Eversource was working Sunday morning to replace the pole.
