Around 3 a.m., police believe a truck got stuck on some wires on Woodgate Street, stretched the wires and snapped three poles. Police found live wires on the street.

The truck driver did not stop and police say the driver may not have known about the damage.

NSTAR was called to the scene to shut off power.
