UTICA – An accident on Oriskany Street in Utica shut down traffic during the afternoon commute today.
The accident occurred around 3 p.m., and it took some time for crews to clean up the scene as a utility pole came down and laid across the street with wires still attached. Police blocked traffic while the crews worked to clear the scene.
