Police investigate downed power lines in Dorchester

Police are investigating how a power pole crashed onto a Dorchester street on Thursday and stopped a truck.  

Powers lines laid across the street after the pole snapped.

The driver of a truck said the pole came down as he was driving up the street. 

He said he saw the pole fall down in front of him.

A neighbor said the pole appeared to be leaning over the past couple of days. 

The driver was not hurt. 

Crews worked overnight making repairs, without having to cut power to the area.

Officials are still investigating what caused the pole to fall.
