— An SUV crashed into a power pole overnight, closing a portion of Kildaire Farm Road and leaving hundreds without power.

The crash occurred before 2 a.m. on Friday near downtown Cary where Dowell Drive and Kildaire Farm Road intersect, leaving a mess of power lines on the street. Around 500 customers in the area lost power initially, but that number decreased to under 200 by 9 a.m.

Kildare Farm Road is completely closed to traffic between Cornwall Road and Walnut Street. Repairs were ongoing at 8 a.m., and power crews at the scene estimated it would take until noon for repairs to be made and power to be restored.
