SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A driver was taken to the hospital following a crash in East Springfield near the Chicopee city line Thursday morning.

Dennis Leger, aide to the Springfield fire commissioner, told 22News that the driver of a Nissan Altima crashed into a light pole, knocking it down, and then crashed into a tree in front of 86 East Street shortly after 8:00 A.M.

Leger said that the driver was taken to the hospital, but there is no word on the severity of that person’s injuries.

The crash sent wires down into the roadway, and a section of East Street had to be shut down while Eversource Energy crews worked to fix the problem.
