A traffic accident shut down a portion of Glenwood Avenue on Youngstown's South Side early Wednesday.

An SUV crashed into a pole and rolled over just before 8 a.m., bringing down wires near Ridge Avenue.

Police say Glenwood is closed between Hawthorne Street to West Woodland Avenue while they wait for a First Energy crew to make repairs.

The driver, who was the only person in the SUV, was taken to a hospital to be checked out for minor injuries. The driver is being cited for failure to control.

FirstEnergy reported at nearly 100 homes and businesses in the area without power in the area. They expect to have the electricity back on by 11 a.m.

The road could be closed until noon.
