A multi-vehicle crash involving two cars, a box truck and a telephone pole led to the closure of Route 101 for about an hour Wednesday afternoon.

A dispatcher with Southwestern N.H. District Fire Mutual Aid told The Sentinel Wednesday that the call came in at 1:32 p.m. No further information was provided regarding the cause of the crash, although it involved a telephone pole.

One person was taken to Cheshire Medical Center. The extent of the victim's injuries remains unknown.

Keene Police Sgt. Collin Zamore told The Sentinel in a phone interview Wednesday that the roadway was reopened around 2:30 p.m.

According to Eversource's outage map, approximately 1,600 residents were affected by the crash.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is available.
