A busy section of Washington Street West is now partially open after a single-vehicle accident.

Dispatchers said the street was closed between Park Avenue and Breece Street on the West Side after a car struck a pole.

The driver of the car was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Appalachian Power crews are on the scene assessing the damage.

Police said the pole may have to be replaced, which would cause a temporary loss of power for some residents.
