Car Crashes Into Power Pole, Closing Wellesley West Of Division

A stretch of Wellesley at Whitehouse in northwest Spokane has reopened about an hour after a power pole fell across the street after a car struck it.

The crash happened just after 4 p.m. about four blocks west of Division.  A car somehow hit a power pole, and the impact of the incident caused the pole to fall across Wellesley. 

Wellesley was closed for over an hour while the power pole is removed from the roadway.  The street reopened just after 5 p.m.
