Posted: Updated:

A car veered off the road and slammed into a power pole around 2:30 Thursday morning.

Officials tell WLOX News the power pole snapped in half, and power lines are hanging just a few feet off the ground.

The accident happened at John Clark Road and Boss Conner Road.

As of 6:00 a.m. Thursday morning crews were still working to remove the wreckage from the site, and John Clark Road was closed from Canal Road to Cardinal Point.

No word on any injuries.

WLOX reached out to Coast Electric on power outages in the area, but have had no response.
