Route 6 reopens in Bristol after car hits utility pole


Route 6 has reopened in Bristol Friday after a car crashed into a pole. 

Police dispatch confirms to News 8 that officers and construction crews were on scene on Route 6, near the ShopRite at 1200 Farmington Avenue, after a car struck and took down a utility pole in the area.

Police say the car continued moving on Farmington Avenue and sideswiped another car.

The crash closed Route 6 between Boardman Street and Stafford Avenue for several hours while repairs were being made.

That road however, has since reopened to traffic. 

Both drivers were transported to the hospital, conditions are unknown.

The accident remains under investigation.
