NEW HAVEN — A single-vehicle rollover accident occurred early Saturday morning, leaving a snapped telephone pole and causing the driver to flee the scene.

New Haven Police Department, New Haven Fire Department, and American Medical Response (AMR) responded to a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Kimberly Avenue and The Boulevard around 1:35 a.m. where they found wires down in the roadway and a red pickup truck involved in the crash.
