— Homestead Road near Chapel Hill High School and two other schools partially reopened Wednesday morning after a car accident knocked down power lines.

The road has been opened to one lane.

The accident at Homestead and Rogers roads did not cause any injuries, Orange County sheriff's deputies said, but Duke Energy crews were called in to replace a broken utility pole and to raise wires that had fallen into the roadway.

Chapel Hill police closed Homestead to keep traffic out of the accident area. The scene was in a short stretch of Homestead that has not been annexed into Chapel Hill or Carrboro.
