CHARLOTTE — A crash in northwest Charlotte brought down a light pole and utility lines, blocking traffic Tuesday morning.

A vehicle hit the pole, took out the lines and ended up in the woods around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday.

CMPD had to block off the right lane of inbound Brookshire Boulevard past Lawton Road.

MEDIC says one person was hospitalized with minor injuries.

The incident left a few hundred without power in the morning, but Duke Energy quickly resolved the issue.
