Car Accident

A SUV crashed into this utility pole on Red Brook Road in Mashpee. The crash sent the driver to the hospital, knocked out power to area homes, and forced police to divert traffic.

A woman was transported to Falmouth Hospital on Friday afternoon after crashing her SUV into a utility pole on Red Brook Road in Mashpee.

The cause of the motor vehicle crash is still under investigation, police said. 

Police said they had to close part of the Red Brook Road, diverting traffic around the scene of the accident onto Great Oak Road and Degrass Road.

Police did not know when the road would reopen and said they are waiting for a new telephone pole to arrive.

The single motor vehicle crash caused some homes to lose power, police said.
