BALDWIN, Maine — Three roads are closed, and power is out in parts of Baldwin after a car crashed into a telephone pole on Sunday. 

Robert Sanborn 42, of Norway, was driving on Sebago Road (Rt. 11) around 12:46 p.m. when he suddenly veered off the roadway and allegedly hit a telephone pole, causing it to fall down on the road before his car rolled on its side, said Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office Naldo Gagnon in a press release. Sanborn was not hurt. 

Naldo said speed is a contributing factor.  

The pole contained a transformer causing power outages in the area.
