TAMPA - The Tampa Police Department closed North 50th Street between Adamo Drive and East Broadway Avenue after a car crashed into a power line pole.
Officers say the single car accident occurred shortly after midnight. Police closed the road because power lines were in the roadway.
TECO crews are working to repair the lines.
TECO estimated North 50th Street will be closed between Broadway and Adamo until approximately 8:00 a.m.
Police did not indicate if the driver of the car suffered any injuries in the crash, but the vehicle did end up on its roof after hitting the pole.
