CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) –  New Lombard Road in Chicopee is back open, after a single-car crash shut down one lane Friday night.

Chicopee Police Lt. Don Strange told 22News a car hit a utility pole near 610 New Lombard Road at about 9:30 p.m. Friday. He said that’s near the Oregon Sportsmen’s Club.

22News broadcast live video from the accident site. The pictures showed a car on a platform tow truck, and a broken utility pole leaning over part of the road.

At the time, traffic was being squeezed down to one lane. The pole has since been replaced, and the road is back open.

No one was hurt in the accident.
