AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A crash temporarily closed a road in Austintown.

A driver crashed into a utility pole on New Road Friday afternoon and cut it in half.

New Road was closed between Yolanda and Orkney Street so crews could clean up the scene, but is now open. Ohio Edison has been called to repair the pole.

The driver appeared to be shaken but did not go to the hospital and was cited for failure to control.

Power has been interrupted to some customers in the area.
