HENRICO COUNTY, Va — A car struck a power pole in Glen Allen Sunday morning, knocking out power to dozens of customers and closing a section of Mountain Road.

Henrico Police said the crash happened at around 2:15 a.m. on Mountain Road near Trolley Lane. The pole was damaged so badly that it needs to be replaced.

Since the crash left low-hanging wires, Henrico Police have closed Mountain Road between Brook Road and North Run Road. Officers were on scene directing traffic.

As of 6:00 a.m., 153 customers were without power. Dominion Virginia Power estimated repairs would take between four and five hours to be completed, before power could be restored.
