Police have reopened a main artery through town after an accident this morning took down power lines. Crews are working to restore the lines but both lanes are open to traffic.

Penobscot Dispatch called us before 6 o'clock this morning to ask us to warn motorists of a road closure. Both lanes of a portion of North Main Street in Brewer were closed this morning, near the intersection with the Day Road. An accident had taken down power lines, so it will take crews some time to clear the scene and repair the damage.

TV-5 reports no one was injured in the accident. The driver says they swerved to avoid a deer and hit the utility pole.

Police are investigating the accident.
