According to Wood County Sheriff Rick Woodyard the call came in just after 2 PM on Wednesday for a two-vehicle crash in front of Brush’s Collision Repair on SR 68.

One vehicle flipped and crashed into a power pole causing the pole to snap.

The road was closed until about 3:30 PM to allow for power crews to clear the road.

There was one woman transported with minor injuries.

Power has been restored following the crash.
