The Day - - OBITUARIES -

New Lon­don — An ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing three ve­hi­cles at the in­ter­sec­tion of Jef­fer­son Av­enue and Boul­der Drive left one car partly sus­pended in midair by a guidewire at­tached to a tele­phone pole Satur­day night.

Upon ar­rival at the scene, po­lice said the front of the black sport util­ity ve­hi­cle was sus­pended about 10 feet in the air while the back tires were on the ground.

Its driver, Christina Mac­Don­ald, 41, of 33 Boul­der Drive, was sit­ting in the front seat un­in­jured, po­lice said. Once out of the ve­hi­cle, po­lice charged Mac­Don­ald with driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol or drugs and fail­ure to drive right. The cause of the ac­ci­dent was still not im­me­di­ately clear Sun­day evening. No in­juries were re­ported.

New Lon­don Po­lice and Fire De­part­ments re­sponded, while Ever­source was re­quested to as­sist in low­er­ing the ve­hi­cle. Two poles were struck, caus­ing a power out­age to some build­ings in the area. New Lon­don fire con­tained var­i­ous liq­uids from ve­hi­cles in­volved in the ac­ci­dent, said fire bat­tal­ion chief Mark Wa­ters.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
