VIDEO: Car vs pole knocks out power, closes Main St. in Wellfleet

– A car crash made a big mess in downtown Wellfleet Thursday evening. A Honda CR-V slammed head-on into a pole on Main Street near School Street around 9:45 p.m. The pole was snapped, a large tree limb felled, with the vehicle ending up a short distance down the road with multiple wires down in the street. The driver, identified as Edward Lytle, 27, of Delmar, NY was taken to Cape Cod Hospital with injuries that were believed to be serious but not life-threatening. 119 Eversource customers were without power, mostly in downtown Wellfleet, although the traffic lights on Route 6 by the Wellfleet Police station were also knocked out. Main Street was expected to be closed through the night while Eversource and Verizon repair the damage. Wellfleet Police are investigating the crash and whether any charges will be filed.
