WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drivers were detoured off a section of Route 20 in West Springfield during the morning commute Wednesday, due to a single-car crash.

West Springfield Police Sgt. Joseph LaFrance told 22News a driver struck a utility pole near the corner of Westfield St. (Route 20) and Van Horn St. at around 5:30 A.M. The pole ended up in the roadway, and an Eversource crew was called-in to make repairs. Eastbound traffic had to be detoured around the crash while work was underway.

LaFrance said the driver of the car was taken to the hospital for evaluation, but is not believed to have suffered serious injuries.

LaFrance said police are investigating whether the crash was the result of distracted driving. He added that neither speed nor drugs or alcohol are believed to have been a cause.

Route 20 is now open to all traffic.
