PLYMOUTH – No power outages were reported in Terryville on Monday after a large power outage a day earlier caused by a car accident.

Firefighters on Sunday, around 11 a.m., said a motorist crashed into a utility pole on Keegan Road, knocking out power in the area. 

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters said a much larger power outage was brought on by an attempt to protect the first responders who were on scene. The road was closed for some time between South Street and Todd Hollow Road.  

Later in the day, firefighters said the larger power outage had been resolved, though about 50 customers remained without power while Eversource crews worked to replace the utility pole and transformer. 

Eversource on Monday morning reported no outages in Plymouth.
