A pole snapped in half on Belmont Street behind Saint Catherine’s Church in Somerville.
Neighbors have been complaining to the city and Eversource since the pole was bent due to weight on it and its continued bending toward the sun.
This past Sunday morning the pole finally snapped in half and came crashing down to the street.
The utility wires landed on a truck passing through the parking lot as the pole collapsed.
Luckily nobody was coming out of mass or CCD at Saint Catherine’s School during this incident.
