Fallen power cables are causing traffic chaos in Hockliffe Road this afternoon.
A lorry driver reversed into a telegraph pole at about 1.40pm leaving wires exposed.
Beds Police were called to the scene to make it safe and help direct traffic, closing the road in both directions between the George Street and Regent Street junctions.
Beds Police said the road reopened at 3.50pm.
A spokesperson for BT was unable to confirm at this stage whether phone lines are affected as a result of the crash.
