Power pole taken down during hit-and-run, police say

CMPD is investigating a hit-and-run accident involving a tractor-trailer in Plaza Midwood.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A portion of Central Avenue was blocked early Friday morning after a hit-and-run, police said.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, officers believe a tractor-trailer clipped power lines along Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood, taking down one utility pole. Police on the scene said the stress of the first pole falling forced another utility pole to snap, blocking the roadway.

Power crews arrived on the scene and are working to clear the road. One lane of outbound Central Avenue is currently closed for the repairs.

No injuries have been reported, police said.
