Customers in Burlington, Chester, Enfield, Lincoln, Lowell, Mattamiscontis and West Enfield were in the dark after an accident on West Broadway in Lincoln, Bangor Hydro spokeswoman Susan Faloon said in a statement.

Faloon said the vehicle struck a utility pole and damaged equipment. Motorists traveling in Lincoln are urged to use caution.
