Thursday, January 03, 2013

A woman is recovering after the SUV she was driving snapped a utility pole and overturned in Delaware.

It happened after 8:00 a.m. Thursday in the 2900 block of Mill Creek Road in Mill Creek, Delaware.

New Castle County Police say the driver of a Land Rover SUV lost control and hit a utility pole.

The impact caused the SUV to overturn and the pole to snap, bringing down wires and causing a power outage.

The female driver was taken to Christiana Hospital with injuries said to be non-life-threatening.

Mill Creek Road was closed from McKennans Church Road to Stoney Batter Road as crews worked to clear the scene.

It took Delmarva Power crews nearly four hours to get power restored in the area.
