Once units arrived on the scene they found a single vehicle that had struck a power pole. There were downed wires on the vehicle. Crews also found out that the driver had left the scene in another vehicle.

A fire truck remained on standby as crews from BGE were dispatched to turn the power off due to hot wires. Witnesses reported some of the wires were burning and smoking.

The road was closed due to the downed lines.
