A Greenfield Police Dispatcher told 22News the accident happened around 9:00 p.m. and the truck couldn’t be moved due to the down wires. At 10:00 p.m., the Eversource outage map showed 520 customers were without power, but by midnight, nearly all the power had been restored.

Greenfield Fire Captain Clark Seaman told 22News there were no injuries and everyone got out of the truck safely. He said the power was turned off while crews worked to repair the power line. Wisdom Way was also blocked off.
