Kyle Olson, 22, of Lincoln Avenue, Bridgeport, was charged with traveling too fast for road conditions after he slammed into a utility pole early last Friday, and briefly knocked out power to residents on Middlebrook Road.
Olson was driving north on Mill Plain Road around 12:30 a.m. when his car slid off the road, hit a snow pile and hit the mailbox of a Mill Plain Road home, according to the report. Then, police said, the car continued through the front yard of another Mill Plain Road home, hitting the utility pole and a stone wall.
Olson was also issued an infraction for operating an unregistered vehicle.
