A Shelburne man suffered minor injuries when he crashed his car into a utility pole on Dorset Street in South Burlington late Tuesday night, knocking out power with crews still working in the area Wednesday morning.
Police said they charged 39-year-old Shon DiGuglielmo with driving under the influence.
The accident happened around 11:11 p.m. Tuesday on Dorset Street near Sadie Lane.
South Burlington police and fire crews responded to reports of a loud crash and power going out. They arrived to find a pole split in half in the roadway.
Police said DiGuglielmo was headed south on Dorset when he went off the east side of the road, hit the pole and then flipped Range Rover SUV several times.
He was taken to UVM Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. After he was released from the hospital, police said he was arrested for DUI and cited to appear in court on Nov. 27.
Police Chief Shawn Burke said DiGuglielmo refused to provide a breath sample after the crash.
Green Mountain Power workers arrived to restore power following the accident. Crews were still on site early Wednesday between Cheesefactory and Nowland Farm roads.
