UPDATED: Wires removed from road, Route 1 reopens in Stonington

Published November 12. 2013 5:00PM   Updated November 12. 2013 7:16PM

Stonington - Police have reopened a section of Route 1 that was closed earlier this evening after a truck snagged and pulled down wires into the roadway.

The incident was first reported at about 5:30 p.m. and occurred just west of Greenhaven Road. Police said the crane portion of a tree service truck took down some low hanging wires as it passed under.

Police said they expect the road will be closed again temporarily this evening when Connecticut Light and Power crews re-string the wires.
