University City Boulevard is still closed in both directions at Mallard Creek Church Road Friday morning, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police.
The closure is due to a single vehicle crash by a suspected drunk driver that knocked down a power pole and brought down power lines and traffic control lights.
The 911 call came in at 1:57 a.m. Charlotte Mecklenburg Police say the vehicle had four people in it when it crashed. Three passengers were transported by MEDIC with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
Duke Energy and the Charlotte Department of Transportation are on scene working on repairs.
