GREENPORT — A 30-year-old man was taken to Columbia Memorial Health on Thursday afternoon after his car struck a utility pole in Greenport, Greenport Fire Department First Assistant Chief Mark Taylor said.
The man’s injuries were minor, according to Taylor.
Greenport fire and rescue were dispatched to Route 9, just south of Kipp Road about 3:40 p.m., after a car traveling north left the right side of the road, snapping a utility pole and bringing down wires, fire officials said.
Route 9 was closed between County Route 31 and Church Road for 25 minutes while crews worked, fire officials said.
State police are investigating. National Grid was called to the scene to replace the utility pole.
