ONLY ON CVP: The driver of a box truck hauling mail that slammed into a utility pole in Bogota late this afternoon told police he lost his brakes.

The 54-year-old Petrillo Trucking driver declined medical attention after the crash brought down wires and debris on River Road, emergency responders told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Bogota police, firefighters and EMS workers were among those at the scene.

“The road will probably be shut for hours while they get in a new pole and restring the wires,” Detective Capt. James Sepp told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
