BOSTON (AP) - Talk about a crash: The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles website went down, making it impossible for drivers to renew licenses and registrations for a time on the typically hectic first day of the month.

The Republican of Springfield reported the site crashed Monday morning just as consumers were gearing up to do important transactions online.

The Registry blamed unspecified “technical difficulties” for the outage. The outage was resolved and service restored about two hours later.

The Registry has been encouraging motorists to do more routine renewals online to save time and ease the crunch on crowded offices.
