Car flips, hits power pole on Jahnke Road

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Crews are working to repair a power pole on Jahnke Road after a car flipped and crashed into it.

The pole is holding at least a dozen power lines. It was uprooted and is now leaning over Jahnke Road, putting stress on the lines.

The vehicle had flipped completely on its roof after running off the road. No word on the condition of the driver or their whereabouts at this time.

Dominion Virginia Power says crews will be back at around 7 a.m. to fix the pole and decide whether or not they need to turn off power to do repairs. That will all be happening just as rush hour gets underway, so prepare for some congestion in the area of Jahnke Road.
