Crash into pole closes portion of Nebraska Avenue in Tampa

TAMPA — An early morning car crash into a power pole Monday led to the closure for several hours of a portion of Nebraska Avenue.

A Toyota Camry was driving north just after 1 a.m. when the driver fell asleep at the wheel, colliding with the pole at Nebraska Avenue and E Bryan Street, according to Tampa police. The pole broke off at its base and was left suspended by the overhanging wires.

The driver of the Camry was not injured, police said. Officers closed traffic on Nebraska Avenue in both directions between E 19th Avenue and E Forest Street while Tampa Electric Company officials worked to replace the pole. The road was reopened about 7 a.m.
