Pole snapped

  • A local woman was transported to the Athol Hospital with unspecified injuries Sunday, June 16 after the vehicle she was operating left the roadway and snapped a utility pole across from the Uptown Common on Main Street in Athol. Nancy J. Wilson of Athol, who was traveling west on Main Street in a white 2004 Jeep Liberty, was cited for operating at a speed greater than reasonable and for a marked lanes violation. The vehicle sustained front-end damage and was towed by Dale’s Auto. Police, fire and ambulance responded to the scene, and a traffic detail was put into place. Travel was reduced to one lane for some time while National Grid replaced the pole. ATHOL DAILY NEWS/DEBORRAH PORTER
