A south Charlotte road was shut down in both directions Tuesday morning due to power lines in the roadway.

All lanes on South Boulevard were shut down due to a crash involving a Bud Light delivery truck. The incident occurred in front of the Rite Aid pharmacy in the 1700 block of South Boulevard.

Crews on scene said the delivery truck knocked down a utility pole and pulled down several power lines, which were seen draped across South Boulevard. The utility pole was seen lying in the roadway.

Crews on scene said this incident is not weather related.

Drivers heading into Center City are being rerouted to East Boulevard. Drivers leaving uptown Charlotte are being rerouted to Park Road.

It is unclear what time South Boulevard is expected to reopen.
