Wires down on tractor trailer in Ludlow


LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – A side street in Ludlow is closed, after an accident brought down a utility pole over the street and wires down onto a tractor trailer.

The accident took place just before 8:00 Palmer Street, which is off East Street in Ludlow.

Ludlow Police Sgt. Mike Gilrein told 22News that the tractor trailer had caught on to a wire between the utility pole and a nearby business, which brought the pole down.

The pole is tilted at a 45 degree angle, hanging over the street.

Eversource Energy crews are in the area to make repairs.

Gilrein said that no one was hurt. Palmer Street is not a residential street, and no homes have lost power as a result of the accident.
