FAIRFIELD, Conn. — It was a busy overnight for the Fairfield Fire Department as crews responded early Saturday to multiple motor vehicle accidents, according to a Facebook post.

In a crash on Burroughs Road in Fairfield, a car slammed into a utility pole and rolled, knocking down electrified power lines and damaging the pole, the fire department said. The driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

In a second accident during the early morning heavy rain, a car went down an embankment and hit a tree on the northbound side of the Merritt Parkway in Westport.
