Armenia Avenue reopens in Tampa after driver hit power pole

TAMPA — A car crashed into a telephone poll on Armenia Avenue between Tampa Bay Boulevard and Woodlawn Avenue early Thursday morning, shutting down the northbound lanes for a couple of hours as crews worked to repair the damage.

A black Infiniti smashed into the pole about 3:15 a.m., police said, cutting off power to the area.

Tampa Fire Rescue and Tampa Electric crews responded to the scene shortly after.

Police said the driver was gone by the time they arrived, but the car was still there. It's not yet clear whether the driver returned to the scene or whether he or she was injured.

The road was reopened by about 4:30 a.m., police said.
