A crash that downed a power pole on Durham Road closed the road Tuesday, officials said.
The road, also designated as N.C. 98, was shut down between Tyler Run Drive and South Wingate Street, town spokesman Bill Crabtree said.
A car veered off the road about 10:40 a.m. and then snapped the pole on impact, Crabtree said.
It was not immediately know if the crash caused injuries.
Crabtree said utility workers were on the scene, but the road was expected to stay closed into the afternoon.
