Accident closes Dover road for at least 4 hours after driver falls asleep, runs into pole
DOVER — Middle Road is closed between Dover Neck Road and Tuttle Lane as police respond to a car accident and downed power lines.
Lt. Carey Beaulieu told NH1 News that the crash was caused by a white SUV that went off the right side of Middle Road between Tuttle Lane and Dover Neck Road.
The car collided with a pole that contained telephone and electric cables and the pole broke off at the base, casing power outages.
There have been no injuries reported.
Police believe that the driver fell asleep at the wheel and that it will take at least four hours to repair the pole.
