CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Over 300 people were without power early Monday morning after a car crashed into a power pole in southeast Charlotte.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, a vehicle ran off the east W.T. Harris Boulevard at Denon Hills Drive around 2:15 a.m. and struck a pole.



The accident caused power lines to hang low, prompting CMPD to close down northbound lanes on east W.T. Harris Boulevard.
