A brief but intense rain storm early Saturday evening, a young driver lost control and crashed in Newtown. Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire Company responded to Berkshire Road near Sherman Street. The 21-year-old male driver of the pickup truck had clipped one utility pole, a tree, and the mailbox and a post, before crashing against a second utility pole. The truck did not roll over, but the passenger door was pinned against the second pole. The driver was able to self-extricate from his vehicle, which was destroyed in the crash. He and a 22-year-old female passenger were checked for injuries but did not go to the hospital.
