Over half the town of Northborough, Massachusetts, temporarily lost power on Monday morning after a crash on Church Street.

Northborough police said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, around 8:30 a.m. that power was out "in a good portion of town" due to a motor vehicle accident on Church Street. According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management agency's power outage map, about 5,000 customers, or 53% of the town, lost power initially. But that number was down to about 2,500, or 37% of town, as of 8:40 p.m.
