Both directions of Massachusetts Avenue at Sangamore Road are closed on Thursday morning after a car collided with a Pepco utility pole.
The accident happened around 10:20 a.m. in the southbound lane, bringing a pole and wires down. The driver appears to be uninjured.
The road will be shut down until Pepco crews can come and repair the downed wires.
The hurricane missed the region, but heavy rain is still expected.
