Much of Wake Forest Road reopens after morning crash

Posted August 14

— A single-vehicle crash that resulted in low-hanging power lines closed Wake Forest Road in Raleigh Monday morning.

The road was closed near Navaho Drive until early afternoon, when all inbound lanes and one outbound lane were reopened to traffic.

There was no word on when the other outbound lanes would open. Navaho Drive between Wake Forest Road and Executive Drive also remained closed Monday afternoon.

Raleigh police advised drivers to avoid the area.

Officials said a driver swerved to avoid an animal in the road and crashed into the power pole. No one was injured.
