Biddeford police and firefighters responded to a single-car crash on South Street that brought down power lines and shut down the road Wednesday.

The crash was reported at about 5:30 p.m. The car went off the road, hit a utility pole and rolled over, ending up on its side and far enough away from the power lines that rescue workers could get to it, said Fire Lt. David Dutremble.

Firefighters used equipment to stabilize the car, then used extrication tools to remove the driver, who was alone, he said.

The patient was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland for evaluation. The person’s name was not immediately available.

South Street was to be shut down for a portion of Wednesday night while Central Maine Power Co. replaces damaged equipment.

South Street was the scene of a fire earlier in the day.
