HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Blake Bottom Road in north Huntsville was closed Monday morning after a truck crashed into a power pole.

Huntsville utility crews blocked the road after the crash near Clouds Creek Drive round 1:30 a.m. The utility pole broke when the truck hit it, causing a power outage.

Huntsville Utilities quickly restored power to a large area, but there were still some customers without power later Monday morning.

No one was hurt.

State troopers took someone into custody. Troopers said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Blake Bottom Road reopened at 11:40 a.m.
