Leechburg Road closed Wednesday for 2 hours after vehicle crashes into utility pole
A section of Leechburg Road in Lower Burrell was closed Wednesday for about two hours when a car crashed into a utility pole.
At least one person was hurt, according to Westmoreland County 911 dispatchers.
The crash was reported just before 11:40 a.m. on the 2700 block of Leechburg Road, the dispatchers said.
West Penn spokesman Todd Meyers said
one customer was without power, Glen’s Frozen Custard.
“I believe the pole is still standing, suspended by the wires above,” he said. “It’s not on the ground, but we (have) to replace it.”
Meyers said it would take about four hours to replace the pole.
The injured person was taken to a hospital by ambulance, dispatchers said.
The road was reopened at about 1:50 p.m., according to Westmoreland County 911.
