West Bay

CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — National Grid is working to restore power to part of Cranston after a crash knocked it out early Tuesday morning.

A car slammed into a pole and flipped over, taking the pole down with it around 2:30 a.m. on New London Avenue near the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal.

Police say two people in the car were taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

According to the Rhode Island Courts Twitter account, all sessions at the traffic tribunal are postponed Tuesday due to the power outage. Those who were scheduled to appear on Tuesday can appear next Tuesday or call the clerk’s office at (401) 275-2700.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
