Crash Shuts Down Busy Road Near EKU

A busy road in Richmond is back open after a crash closed it for hours overnight on Thursday.

Police say a car slammed into a utility pole early in the morning, along Lancaster Avenue near University Drive. That's next to the EKU campus.

The crash took out the pole and a high-voltage power line. Crews spent most of the night cleaning up the damage.

The driver went to the hospital. He's expected to be OK.
