BEAVER TWP., Ohio (WKBN)- Downed power lines and a downed pole temporarily closed a portion of state Route 164 Thursday morning.
The area between Routes 165 and 14 in Beaver Township was closed shortly before 6:30 a.m. The area is now back open.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) said one vehicle crashed into a tree, hitting a utility pole. Troopers said that the driver fled the area. Later in the morning, troopers said the driver of a semi-truck did not see the pole and wires, so the semi hit the pole and wires and knocked them onto the road.
Over 60 people are without power in Mahoning County, according to FirstEnergy. According to its website, power is expected to be restored by 11:30 a.m.
OSHP is still investigating.
