WEST HARTFORD -- Mountain Road reopened about 10 p.m. Friday night after a dump truck that crashed on Mountain Road this morning, taking down utility poles and wires.

An occupant of the truck, 24-year-old John Connors of Middletown, was taken by ambulance to St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center. His injuries did not appear to be serious, police said.

Police are unsure if Connors was driving or if the driver fled the scene. Police dogs attempted to track a possible second occupant.

The truck belongs to Connors' father, Edward Connors. According to Department of Motor Vehicle records, the truck was registered with the DMV on April 27.

The crash was reported at 11:37 a.m., Lt. Jeff Rose said.

Witnesses said the truck was traveling south on Mountain Road with the truck bed up. As it entered the intersection of Albany Avenue, the bed hit one of the overhead traffic signal lights, tearing the light off the wires.

The wires came down and the utilities poles on the southwest and southeast corners were damaged beyond repair, police said. The truck kept going south on Mountain Road before rolling over onto its left side south of the intersection.

The West Hartford Department of Public Works, the Department of Motor Vehicle truck squad, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Environmental Protection and several utility companies responded to the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the accident of has any information is asked to call the West Hartford Police Department Traffic Division at 860-523-2008.
