A motor vehicle accident causes Friday morning backups on the Octopus.

Detective Captain Steven Vicente says at around 8 a.m. they received a report that a utility truck struck a traffic light pole at the intersection of Kempton St. and Pleasant St. knocking it over.

Vicente says it could be a few hours before repairs are finished and some lane shutdowns may be in place.

However, Vicente says traffic should be able to get through the area.

No injuries were reported.
