Route 82 in Salem reopened following accident

Salem – A single-car crash temporarily shut down Route 82 west of Route 354 on Saturday afternoon.

Just before 12:30 p.m., a Ford E350 van traveling west on Route 82 with six passengers went off the eastbound side of the road and struck a utility pole, state police said. The collision knocked the pole down, forcing the closure of the roadway.

All six passengers were taken by ambulance to The William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, though an accident report said only the driver sustained an injury.
