Power Outage On Section Of West Side Of Town

UPDATE @ 7:14 a.m.: Power has been restored to most of the area affected.

A single car accident around 6 o’clock this morning on Route 28 just outside of Roselle Park by the Garden State Parkway is the apparent reason for power outage in a section of Roselle Park. Police and other emergency responders were still on scene.

It appeared that a car had crashed into a utility pole near Carpenter Street on North Avenue in Cranford.

A canvas of the area had shown that power was out from Westfield Avenue to West Webster Avenue between Grove Street and Amsterdam Avenue.

As of yet, no estimated time to have power return has been provided. PSE&G has been contacted and is responding.

Commuters along Westfield Avenue in the area of the Garden State Parkway should give themselves extra time or find alternate routes for their morning commute.
