Route 2 in Erving Reopened after Rollover Crash

road-closedERVING, Mass. (WGGB) – Route 2 in Erving was closed after a rollover accident left wires and a telephone pole lying across the road Friday night. But the road has since been reopened to traffic.

Sergeant Steven Jankowski from the Athol barracks of the Massachusetts State Police told ABC 40 one person was taken to Athol Memorial Hospital to be checked out for injuries. The nature of those injuries are unknown at this time.

The road was completely blocked off by the telephone pole and crews worked overnight to try and clear it up for traffic to get through.

National Grid reported that 172 people were without power in that area due to the wires being down. That power has since been restored.
