Police and fire departments responded to a serious crash Sunday morning that reportedly injured multiple people.

Just before 8:30 a.m., a call came into dispatch for a car versus pole crash in the area of 710 State Road (Route 6) in Dartmouth.

According to scanner transmissions, bystanders removed a person out of the vehicle who was entrapped and two people in total were injured.

Dartmouth Police stated that upon arrival, officers confirmed that a 2006 Nissan Sentra operated by a 19-year-old New Bedford woman, had left the roadway and struck the utility pole, thus causing it to crack at the base.

Both the operator of the Nissan, and their passenger, were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash caused that area of Route 6 to be shut down to traffic.

According to a social media post by Dartmouth Police, the road was reopened at approximately 9:00 a.m.

Eversource Electric is currently on location replacing the utility pole.
