NORTH ANDOVER — Two people were hospitalized early Friday morning after an allegedly drunk driver crashed into a utility pole on Route 125.
The two victims, including the driver, were treated at Lawrence General Hospital for what police Lt. Charles Gray described as non-life-threatening injuries. Arrested and charged with his second offense of drunk driving was Matthew Kelly, 31, of 141 Winona Ave., Haverhill.
Kelly’s car struck a pole near 1503 Osgood St., which is very close to the police station. The vehicle broke the pole and left the wires hanging very low, police said. National Grid was contacted.
Officer Michael Gilligan, who made the arrest, saw the crash happen, according to Gray.
