A crash has closed a section of Van Dorn Street near Landmark Mall, according to police.
The crash damaged a power pole and prompted the closure of Van Dorn Street between Duke Street and Holmes Run Parkway.
Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine said it was a single-car accident that resulted in minor injuries to the driver, who was taken to a local hospital. The power company is on the scene, Ballantine said, but that it would be several hours before the pole was repaired. Drivers should expect the road to be closed for the duration of those repairs.
Police said on Twitter that people should avoid the area.
