The collision caused the pole to be uprooted from the ground and sent wires plunging into the street. As a result, the northbound lane on Broad Street has been closed at Sycamore Avenue.

Shrewsbury Borough police have responded to the scene and are diverting traffic in the area.

Drivers are advised to plan an alternate route and expect delays as crews address the situation.
