Wreck snaps pole; street closed

Gregson Street will be closed to traffic from W. Pettigrew to Chapel Hill Street until sometime between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. today while crews repair a broken utility pole.

A southbound 1989 Toyota Corolla ran off the road about 6:23 a.m. today and struck the pole, causing it to snap, Durham police said. Three people in the car received non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the car, Edilso Aguilar, 21, of 311 S. LaSalle, was charged with driving without a license, police said. Additional charges are pending.
