chicopee crash

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WGGB) — One person is recovering following a crash Thursday afternoon in Chicopee.

Chicopee Police say that around 5:30 p.m., a driver appears to have lost control of a pickup truck near 169 Beauchamp Terrace, slid into and sheared a utility pole, and rolled over.

The male driver, who was the only person in the truck, was taken to Baystate Medical Center with what are described as minor injuries.

Crews from Chicopee Electric Light spent most of the night at the scene, repairing the pole and replacing wires.

Police add that a citation has been issued against the driver.

The road was closed for most of the night, but has since reopened.
