LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) - East Street is back open in Ludlow Sunday night after a bolt of lightning hit a power poll, closing a section of the road for several hours.
By around 5:00 PM, more than 300 Ludlow residents were without power.
Sgt. Mike Brennan told 22News the Western Mass Electric Company repaired the pole, which snapped, sending a live wire across the road in the area of the Red Bridge Bait & Tackle Shop.
