PROSPECT — Route 69 between Talmadge Hill Road and Lee Road has been reopened following an accident Tuesday morning.

The accident occurred shortly after 8 a.m., according to the state Department of Transportation.

Prospect Fire Marshal Keith Griffin said a woman was driving on Route 69, or New Haven Road, toward New Haven when she crossed lanes and crashed into a utility pole. Griffin said the woman was out of the car when first responders arrived and was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The road was closed between Talmage Hill Road and Lee Road for several hours as Eversource Energy repaired the pole. The accident remains under investigation.
