Car crashes into pole, pole falls on car, everything catches on fire

Flaming car and electric lines in Dorchester

The Boston Fire Department reports a driver managed to escape without injury after he drove into a utility pole at New England and Southern avenues in Dorchester, bringing down a transformer and electric wires onto his car and a nearby fence, all of which then burst into flames around 9:40 p.m. on Tuesday.

Firefighters had to watch the burning carnage from a safe distance until an Eversource crew responded about 35 minutes later to turn off the current to the pole.

The pole lacks high viz clothing and was probably wearing headphones.
