Some New Rochelle residents were temporarily left without power when a truck struck a utility pole in Westchester.

A truck driver struck a utility pole in New Rochelle near 94 Lockwood Avenue at approximately 11:50 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, police said. After striking the pole, power lines were taken down, causing a temporary power outage in the immediate area, which is near Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital.
