Garbage truck knocks down utility pole in downtown Darien, businesses lose power
On Wednesday morning, Dec. 11, at about 9:30 a.m., a City Carting & Recycling truck was passing through the narrow entranceway between Cold Play Cyrotherapy and Shoes & More on Boston Post Road, when it caught some wires and took them down, according to a worker from Eversource. This caused a power outage at Cold Play, Darien Cleaners & Tailors and Atelier & Boutique Custom Couture and Tailoring.
Eversource said they got a report of a vehicle vs. pole at 9:06 a.m. and had crews on the scene within 20 minutes. Eversouce spokesman Frank Poirot said they currently show no power outages in the area and if businesses still have power issues they should contact Eversource directly at 800-286-2000.
